Filigree Reliquary Pendant Necklace

This is an old gold tone filigree reliquary pendant on a later gold tone twisted link necklace chain. There are no markings. Metal content is gold tone brass perhaps with gold plating. The center window of the pendant is encapsulated under celluloid covers in front and back. It does not appear to contain any relic, other than the dust of time. My understanding is that typical use would have been to capture a drop of blood or strand of hair within the center compartment, but this one appears to not have been used.

The pendant measures 2" (including bail) x 1.375". The chain is 18" long.

Condition is good. There is one area of discoloration on the front of the pendant.

This is an unusual pendant with gothic appeal.
