Sacred Heart Ex Voto
This immense antique Sacred Heart Ex Voto is truly outstanding and one of the most amazing antiquities I´ve had the good fortune to procure. This treasure is adorned with ornate details including four heavenly cherubs and the acronym GR “Grazia Recevuta” (received grace) in the center of the heart.
The perfect addition for a spiritual alter or a devotional object collection. This piece looks especially stunning with a silk or velvet ribbon through the loop. Equally stunning placed on a stand under a bell jar.
The material is acid tested silver of 800/1000 or higher.
Please examine the photos carefully to view the traces of time and antique wear including dark smudges throughout and teal green patina on the right side of the ex voto. The left side of the flame has a slight chip (near the cherub). top loop is very loose and would benefit from repair, however it does not detract from the overall beauty of this outstanding antique piece.
The ex voto measures 10.25 inches in length and 7.40 inches wide
Circa early 1900s
Country of origin - Italy
