Trésor Bleu Exclusive
Item no. A700.105
Trésor Bleu Exclusive - Antique (more than 100 years old)
France, c.1917 (World War I)
We love that our trésors have years of wear, years of prayer. If only these "Ballers de Prièr" - AKA, prayer bullets - could talk. French soldiers in World War I created these artifacts by hand, by literally using empty ammunition (bullet) casings.
Once crafted, soldiers would add a saint, or Mary, and take them with them as a portable prayer tool. This particular artifact is 1.7 inches high, .5 inches in diameter at its base. Twist the bottom to open and close the "door" to Mary. On the top is stamped "ND de Lourdes" where it was first procured and blessed.
This "Baller de Prière" makes a perfect travel piece, or journey-through-life piece. All trésors are custom wrapped for gifting and shipping is free within the U.S.
