RESERVED FOR ELENNEJONES. Do not buy. First payment.This is a very lovely, highly collectable antique Ex Voto flacon (small portable container, originally for holy oil) from the mid 1800's , made of substantial brass & with a loop to hang it on the reverse. Perhaps because it is a container rather than a locket it is heavier than the other Ex Votos I've collected.


It is in wonderful condition, measuring 2 & 5/8ths inches long, by 1 & 1/4 inches wide, by 5/8ths of an inch deep.
The front has the initial M in a beautiful engraved monogram with decorative crossed branches of flowers on each side of it.
The reverse is plain, with a loop for hanging.
I love the symbol of the heart & have been collecting hearts for a long time. Ex Votos are religious offerings in the form of flaming hearts- dedicated to Jesus, Mary or the Saints, & usually bear distinctive monograms..The French & Belgian Ex Votos are often made of copper or brass & often contained messages of thanks for answered prayers.

This can be worn on a cord or chain or used as a fabulous collectible as it displays beautifully.


This sale is for the single antique ex voto flacon only.
