Very nice 19th reliquary,Napoleon III period,in a blackened wooden frame surrounded by gilded brass with a bombed glass.
It houses the relics of Saint-François de Sales (1567-1622),Bishop of Geneva, Sainte Jeanne Françoise de Chantal (1572-1641),founder of The Order of La Visitation with St François de Sales,and la Bienheureuse Marguerite Marie, nun of the Visitation.
The relics are fixed on small golden papers and surrounded by a pretty decoration of flowers and foliage made of small glass beads and gilded paper.
The background is dark red velvet.
At the back,a red ribbon fixed by two wax seals attests to the authenticity and the fact that the reliquary has not been opened.
The frame has some wear at the top and a small nail has gone through the thickness of the wood.
Inside,a few small beads came off and one of them got stuck to the glass.
There is also a little dust behind the glass.
These are minor small defects ,very forgivable for an antique object,never opened.

Dimension : 6’’ x 5’’ (15cm x 13cm)

A charming devotional item.
