19th C French ormolu flaming sacred heart paste stone box reliquary ex-voto

Delicious antique French gilt brass religious flaming sacred heart box, reliquary, ex-voto, embellished with paste stones and scrolled initial M for Mary, dating from the late 1800's. The heart opens at the back so that one could add a thank you message to the Virgin Mary but of course it would have many other uses. There is a small ring for hanging the reliquary making it just perfect for period display, suspended with perhaps a large ribbon bow embellishment as a finishing touch. The heart has taken on a wonderful faded grandeur air with some loss of gilding in places. The back doors opens and closes correctly and all the stones are present. A charming faded grandeur decorative treasure for your delectation ! Dimensions : 4 1/2 inches high 2 1/8th wide 7/8th inch deep
