A Gorgeous And Rare Antique French Sacred Heart Votive, 1800's
This is a gorgeous and extremely rare antique French Sacred Heart ex voto that comes from a private collection of exceptional ancient sacred objects from Lourdes. It is made of bronze and measures about 16 x 9 x 4 cm or approximately 6.3 x 3.5 x 1.5 inches and it is in lovely antique condition with a wonderful timeworn patina created by the passage of time. The top part [the flame] opens in order to use the heart as a flask or a vessel for the holy water. On the back of the flame is a ring that allows this votive to be displayed on a wall if desired. The front of the heart is engraved with garlands of lilies and ornate initials SJ [Society of Jesus]. This remarkable ex voto that dates from the early1800’s is exactly as I discovered it in the South of France with minor signs of ageing [mainly seen in its glorious patina] which in my opinion only brings forth its true beauty today. For the full condition please refer to the images!
