Our Lady Prayer Ammunition - c. 1916

$175.00

Trésor Bleu Exclusive, Authentic French, WWI era

Dimensions:  2.1 inches high, .5 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.  Also called "trench art," soldiers would use them for prayer and devotion in the trenches.   This particular item is a hollowed out shell.  Church window-styled opening, copper relief at top, with still-functioning twist to reveal Our Lady holding Jesus, a tiny statuette, about 1 inch high and removable.  Pelirinage "pilgrimage" verbiage on top.  Tarnishing and wear evident on this 104 year old piece.

Free shipping within the U.S., plus  free gift boxing
