Description
Reliquary, 12 relics - Silver - Late 18th century
Italy

Travel reliquary with double case in solid 800 silver with 12 relics of Saints.
Hallmark of the Vatican from the late 18th century.
Valuable reliquary with double case from the 18th century in solid 800 silver with 12 very old relics of Saints inside. The reliquary is in perfect original condition. The relics are all in perfect condition, complete with bone fragment and cartouche with the relevant name of the Saint.
The case looks sealed and not altered, with original intact glass. On the side it bears the silver hallmark and the Vatican hallmark.
The manufacture is very accurate down to the smallest detail. The item is quite big and heavy, and it is kept in a more recent silk case, because these relics were given as a gift to bishops when they were elected.

Size: 9 x 6 cm. Weight: 110 g.

Trackable shipping worldwide via express courier.
