A rare antique French gilt bronze (possibly brass), and ruby red glass sacred heart of Mary or Jesus (couer de Marie) votive or bud vase holder, in excellent antique condition. The glass has a gorgeous, rich color that graduates from darker on the bottom, to lighter on the top of the heart. There is a clear glass insert to hold a small votive candle or flowers. Not being a Catholic, I'm unfamiliar with the original purpose, so I'm just making a guess. There are no chips or cracks.It measures approximately 10 3/4 tall. This is a truly special piece. If you need some extra time, please let me know right away and I will gladly make special arrangements for you. Thank very much for your interest.
