Item № A200.107
Trésor Bleu Exclusive
France, c. 1954
Mid-century rectangular design of Lourdes, with apparition on reverse. 1 inch high, .85 inch wide. Hangs from a genuine freshwater pearl choker necklace with unique center-opening circular accent. The reverse is a relief image of the Grotto at Lourdes, where St. Bernadette witnessed multiple apparitions of Mary. Lourdes, and the water from the spring, is attributed to countless miracles since 1858.
Trésors blue are vintage pieces of French art and devotion. Also known as "Médailles De Pelerinage" or "Medals of Pilgrimage," these little medals have had voyages from another generation, another life, another country. People of faith still undertake pilgrimages as a way of deepening their religious devotion, seeking miracles, spiritual healing, forgiveness, or for the journey itself. The experience is not solely about reaching the end, it is about what is endured, enjoyed, and learned along the way.
