Antique French Gilt Wood Reliquary

(1 customer review)


A reliquary is a container for holy relics. This one is exquisite with its gilding and highly decorative ornaments and flourishes. It has three glass windows to view the inside through. It opens from back with a key. It contains a green velvet pillow, presumably for the relic to sit upon. It no longer contains a relic. It also has Dutch documentation from the Centraal Bureau Voor Genealogie from 1974. The CBG is the Dutch research centre for genealogical and heraldic studies. The documentation puts the age at late 17th, early 18th century.
