A HUGE 5.75 inch shimmering antique EX-VOTO beauty heart from PARIS anno 1819-1838. Made in precious first class French silver 950/1000 with gold plated over silver (vermeil) on the outside.
I dare to claim that this is a real museum item. Has the wieght of 172.5 grams first grade silver!
With the delicate engraving on both sides: EX-VOTO
We have never had such a special design and so old ex-voto heart in solid silver.
This shape and size is already special and then in solid silver.
We were able to get this heart at PARIS and we can date it fairly well from 1819 - 1838.
This is among other things because the heart is marked FOUR times:
Marked twice with Hallmarked with the MERCURE heads.
although these are all different, both were used ONLY in: PARIS from August 16, 1819 to May 10, 1838.
One: Guarantee large objects Paris 950/1000 and the other stands for Paris and the departments 950/1000
This exclusive ex-voto heart has been the work of a master silver smith. It is marked twice with the master marks (see photos).

It is undoubtedly made to order by a wealthy Parishioner. The front and the back of the sacred heart have the engraving: EX-VOTO (you will find a heart with this shift very nice). The heart is bordered with a pearl border and cords. The top has a large loop in the form of a rope attachment, this is meant to pull ribbon or chain through. This is of course all made from the gold-plated overlay on silver, known as VERMEIL.
Is in a good condition given its age. Some very small scratches and dents. It opens and closes perfectly but very differently than with other ex-voto hearts. Hinges are at the top of the heart and at the bottom is a bolt and a tab
5.75 inch (14.5 cm) high
3.6 inches (9 cm) wide
1.93 inch (4.9 cm) Deep

We have traveled through France for over two and a half week to find unique things again.
The journey began in the Parisian environments to visit our traders. Then towards the Cote d'Asur. There this time we could buy fantastic things. After a week and a half via the Dordogne back to Brittany and the Loire region. There we were again very happy with the things we were able to get there. We hope that we can make other people happy too.

Greetings Jolanda and Ben and thanks to visit our store.
