Trésor Bleu Exclusive, Authentic

1917 (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.  This piece opens on the top to reveal a tiny (1 inch) statuette of Our Lady.  Top includes historic logo of Our Lady of Lourdes.  This items was procured and blessed during WWI at Lourdes, where family of French soldiers would purchase these "prayer ammunition" pieces for soldiers to take into the trenches.  In some other variations, 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.  The door on the front of this cylinder opens to reveal a second relief statue of Mary, standing in prayer.  Fleur de lis adorn this piece, a symbol of French pride and of the Trinity.

2.5 inches in height, .5 inches in diameter.
