Lovely older reliquary for beloved Saint Charles Borromeo, often referred to as the Father of the Clergy.. The relic is on a gold decorative flower on red fabric, with the Saint labeled in fine script S Charles B (that is all that shows through the glass)., in a brass or bronze tone metal reliquary under glass; with the back removable to show the official red seal and threads intact. There is a loop on top for hanging. This reliquary came to us from another collector many years ago and has been well loved and cared for in our personal collection. It measures 1 & 1/16" tall not counting the loop and 13/16" wide and in good condition. St Charles is the patron Saint of bishops, seminarians, spiritual leaders, against ulcers, stomach and intestinal disorders just to name a few. He was canonized in 1610. As with any reliquary or sacred religious item, this should be displayed with dignity and respect; please do not purchase unless you intend to honor this Saint.
