This is an uncommon little reliquary made of very light cut wood with a pretty clear patina.
Inside, a relic of St Vincent is in the center of a golden paper paperolle ,in shape of foliage and embellished by three small flowers in pale blue glass beads.
The background is in brown velvet and the turn in orange folded paper.
The reliquary has not been opened,it is closed with black paper and a small cord retained by a nail.
Except a little lack of wood on one side,only visible at the back,this pretty antique reliquary is in good condition.
A charming devotional object.
Dimension : 2,7’’ H x 2,4’’ W x 0,6’’T (6,8cm x 6cm x 1,5cm)
