This Silver and Gold Gilt Heart is an Ex Voto Sacre Coeur box, featuring an embossed scene of the Virgin and Child, surrounded by arches of Roses on one side and Lilies on the other, with a stippled background.
With a hinge on the right side, it opens to hold Prayers and Wishes....there are several very very petite hallmarks on the edge of the cover, but too small to actually denote, but most of these Silver Ex Votos are French or Italian.
The size of the Heart is approx. 2.75" tall x 2.3" wide and it is in very good condition..a few small "bump outs" on the rear shoulders of the Heart, and retains a faint fragrance of a lady's French perfume!
For your collection...
