Trésor Bleu Exclusive, Authentic

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 copper piece twists open to reveal St. Anthony holding Jesus, a classic image symbolizing St. Anthony's closeness to Jesus, appearing to St. Anthony of Padua late in life.  The door opens an closes by twisting the cylinder right and left.
