Offering for sale a very rare and very old reliquary for Saint Valentine. This is a Catholic reliquary, from France, in a gold tone or brass tone metal oval container. Inside under glass is a very very large relic of Saint Valentine with the label underneath, surrounded by a shiny gold coiled decoration. On the back is a red seal with red threads holding it in place , and is intact. We acquired this precious religious icon from a dealer in France, where the Nuns and Sisters of religious orders prepared most of the reliquaries to be given out to the clergy and other religious. This one is beautiful, no damage, lovely design, clean; and extremely rare for the relic to be so large. The overall size of the reliquary is 1 & 1/4" by 1" and it is approximately 1/2" thick.
