|St. Catherine's Wheel is the instrument upon which this 3rd century saint
was almost martyred. When the Roman emperor's diabolical engine was put into
motion to destroy the saint, it burst into shrapnel and killed many of the
bloodthirsty onlookers. This piece is a copy of a British brooch, one of many
similar extant badges, although a specific shrine cannot be identified as the source.
We also offer a large sign that shows the saint herself.
