Superb 19th C. French MOP jeweled flaming sacred heart ex-voto reliquary

Superb late 19th C French gilt brass and mother of pearl, religious flaming sacred heart box / reliquary / ex voto, embellished with paste stones and scrolled initial M. It opens at the back, so that one can add a thank you message. The heart is in excellent condition, save for a little verdi-gris on the bottom of the initial M. All the stones are present and the door opens and closes correctly. There is a small ring for hanging the heart on the back of the flaming element. A large ribbon bow embellishment would make a perfect finishing touch for period display or perhaps suspended on a gilt chain worn as a piece of jewelry. A delicious decorative treasure for your delectation ! Dimensions : 4 3/4 inches high 2 1/4 inches wide
