Infant of Prague Necklace - c. 1950

Item №  A500.107

Origin:  France, 1950

Trésor Bleu Exclusive

Unique, French Cloissoné silver-etched cloissone pendant featuring the Infant of Prague in relief.  Reverse is blank.  Pendant is set on a .85 mm rounded box chain, 16 inches long, 17 inches with .3 inch glass bead drop.  Over the decades, millions of Catholic pilgrims have paid homage to the Infant of Prague. It is one of the major pilgrimage centers in Central Europe, with the Prague church housing the Infant Jesus statue offering regular mass in French, Czech, Spanish, Italian and German languages. Statuettes of the Infant Jesus are placed inside many Catholic churches, sometimes with the quotation, "The more you honour me, the more I will bless you.”  

Trésors blue are tiny 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.  The deep "ultramarine" blue is the sacred color of Mary, representing truth, hope and faith since 200 AD.   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.

All Trésors Bleu are pre-packaged for gifting.
