Trésor Bleu Exclusive

Open Door of Mary Lourdes Prayer Ammunition, c.1916

$240.00

Item no. PB306.125

Trésor Bleu Exclusive, Authentic

Dimensions:  1.25 inches high, .75 inches in diameter at the base.

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.  At the top is an iconic monogram of Lourdes:  NDL, or Notre Dame de Lourdes.  With fleur de lis icons surrounding the cylinder, symbolizing French pride and the Trinity, and a door revealing Our Lady on the outside.  Cylinder opens up to reveal a .75 inch statue of Mary.

This particular piece has historical significance as it is from Lourdes, WWI era.
