European Find/Trend: Votivos


I found these lovely antique Italian votivos {$150-400 ea.} over on French Pedestals and Dreams but I have been spotting them every so often at the flea markets here in Europe and everytime I see one, I fall a little harder for them. Aren't they gorgeous?

When I first saw one, I didn't know the story so the German man selling them explained to me and my friend that {his particular selection} came from tiny chapels scattered throughout the hills of the Black Forest. People would bring the hearts to the chapel and say a prayer/wish for a loved one and leave the heart in the chapel as a type of offering. As you can imagine, the hearts began to pile up so the chapels began to sell them to tourists to make some income and now they're showing up at antique shops and markets throughout the world.

I thought they would make beautiful Christmas ornaments. Or maybe they could be used as escort card holders? What do you think?
