The Badge of the Apocryphal Saint, Santa Felicia Nuestra Señora de la Salida. (Saint Felicia Our Lady of the Exit)
She is generally held to be one of the New World non-Canonical saints, she is said to either have been held captive in a Walled Garden, or to have been trapped in one by Misfortune, with a great many unruly and disagreeable persons. In any case, she climbed upon the moral high ground, and there found, and made, a miraculous Exit, to the Great Relief of all. Her Early cult was not very influential, being venerated chiefly by itinerant locksmiths and Snake-oil peddlers, but she has sprung to prominence in the modern age, and is often appealed to to help Facilitate an exit, either from uncomfortable situations, or of Disagreeable persons.
She is the Patron Saint of Internet Moderators, Doormen and Bouncers, Air Stewards, Escapologists, and Prisoners.
She is Depicted with her miraculous Door, and her hand raised in valediction. Some examples of her badge, (including this one) have 'Vale' inscribed on the inside of the door.
Stylistically, this example owes more to badges of St Catherine from Low Counties finds, rather than English ones, though it does have an English pin back. The moving door is unusual in a badge of this kind, though not wholly unknown, and the resulting complexity of manufacture suggests that the saint had quite a following.
She stands just shy of 1 3/4" tall by 1 1/4" wide with her door closed. (42 x30mm)
Medieval pin and clasp back as Standard Modern Pin back available. (+£3)
