Item no. A700.100
Trésor Bleu Exclusive, Authentic
1916 (World War I) - We love that our trésors have years of wear, years of prayer. If only these "ballers de prièr" - prayer bullets - could talk. French soldiers in World War I created these artifacts by hand, by literally using ammunition casings to create sacred pieces of art, plentiful during WWI. This piece was hand-made by a French soldier as a tribute to the Cathedral Pont-à-Mousson. In 1572 Cardinal Charles of Lorraine established a Jesuit university at Pont-à-Mousson. Pont-à-Mousson and the surrounding region saw terrible fighting during World War I between France and Germany. In the World War Bois-Le-Prêtre, Croix des Carmes, Xon and Grand-Couronné are names that recall savage fighting between French and German soldiers.
4 inches in height, 1.2 inches in diameter, shallow cylinder.
This iconic, unique piece is a 38MM armour piercing anti-tank round.
