This sacred heart ex-voto is very similar to our pewter sacred heart vial, but unlike the vial it is not meant to hold anything inside. I.e. they are reproduced to look like an antique holy water vessel, but don't function as such.
It is finished in an antique silver finish*, and is engraved with the Monogram of Mary - a large script "M" surrounded by flowers.
A hook on the back allows it to be made in to a necklace or charm for you or your Santos, a wall hanging, or even an ornament. It is hollow (though usually not airtight) and lightweight - making it easy to hang in delicate places, such as the wrist of your Santos, or even a wedding bouquet!
The sacred heart measures approx. 4 inches from the top of the flame to the bottom of the heart, 2 inches across at it's widest point, and approximately 3/4 inch thick.
With the artisan craftsmanship involved, no two of these ex-votos are exactly alike; we added pictures to illustrate examples of differences in engraving, brightness/color, and/or shape that may occur. Also, some open, while others do not. Lastly, as you can see in some of the photos, *the 'flames' are not always antiqued; this too varies from piece to piece.
