This is a very lovely, highly collectable antique Ex Voto locket from the mid 1800's , made of brass & with a loop to hang it from on the reverse.

It is small & beautiful, very nice proportions (a deeper heart than I have seen before), it measures 1& 7/8ths inches long, by 7/8ths of an inch wide, by 9/16ths of an inch deep.
It has a crown & some flowers & leaves surrounding the initials NDL. There are also tiny initials which are OE. I've never seen surface decoration like this before, & think the way the crown is entwined with the initial L is particularly lovely.
It opens & closes well & is in very good condition apart from two small marks on the right & left sides at the bottom of the flames.
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, as I show in my last 2 pictures.


This sale is for the single antique ex voto only.
