St Alban Pilgrim Badge, Hand Cast In Lead Free Pewter & Boxed With A Brief Historical Descripition
Saint Alban Pilgrim Badge (smaller version) Mid-fifteenth century. This depicts the story of England's first martyr, Alban, who was a legionnaire at Veralamium and converted to Christianity. When he refused to give up his faith his head was tied to a tree by his hair and an executioner, in full armour, decapitated him with a single blow. At that exact moment the executioner's eyes popped out on their stalks, so that he should never see the good that was to come from Saint Alban's martyrdom.
Height 4cm. With lapel pin fixing.
