Antique Hand Painted Sacred Heart Detente / Large French Nun's Ex Voto on Silk

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Large sized silk Sacred Heart Ex Voto Catholic sacramental / detente

{ca 1920}

This beautiful detente features a printed Sacred Heart badge sewn onto silk. It is decorated with hand painted roses, antique mercury sequins and tiny glass beads. Crochet lace decorates the border. It is still on its original card. These Sacred Heart detentes were hand crafted by Nuns and oftentimes included bits of Agnus Dei wax sewn into the silk.

This piece is offered in beautiful condition with no damage and little signs of wear.

It measures 4 1/4" x 3 1/4"

+ I have direct access to over FIFTY First and Second class relics of various Saints, including a couple Passion relics. If you wish for this sacramental to become a very important third class relic, I would be honored to touch this to the reliquaries. I will include a list of the Saints with your package. Please leave me a note during checkout if you would like this to be done! +

This was bought and given as a gift, and was received with great delight. It's a lovely piece. Laura, as always, is a pleasure to deal with. Stores like this are what make Etsy a fun place to hang out and invest in art!
