Rare to find large old reliquary with 49 Saints included. this is one of the rarest reliquary from our personal collection. In the center is a metal decoration we always assumed was a Church or Tabernacle design, further accented by the lovely metalwork overlay on the glass all around the oval reliquary. Such a fabulous design, with each label visible between the decorations, with others above, below and inside the Tabernacle. This magnificent reliquary measures 6" tall and 5" wide and 1 & 1/4" deep. It has no cover on the back. The red seal is present and threads intact in the interior. On the back original old label "Societa Mariana, diretta da Agostino Campodonico, Roma via de' Cesarini al Gesis N 90" and written in old script at the top "3990, Remo Guillon" (guess on the spelling). Here are the Saints we can read: St Joseph, St John the Baptist, St Elizabeth, St Cecelia, St Agnes, St Lucia, St Bernard, St Dominic, St Francis of Asissi, St Benedict, St Anthony, St Nicholas of Myra, St Catherine of Sienna, St Ambrose, St Phillip, St Bartholomew, St Simon, St Matthew, St Thaddeus, St Mathias, St Zachary (father of St John the Baptist), St Anastasia, St Agatha, Mary Magdalen, St Martin of Tours, St Jerome, St Augustine, Pope Gregory I, Pope Silvester, St Gerard Majella, St Cosmos & Damian, St Paul Miki & John Goto, St Fabian, St Peter, St Paul Apostle, St Andrew Apostle, St James major, St John the Beloved, St Thomas, St James lesser, St Philip, St Barnabus, St Luke, St Mark, St Innocents, St Stephen, St Lawrence, & St Vincent.
