Antique Spanish Colonial Relicario
This is a beautiful antique 2-sided large relicario from South America. The image of the young San Juan Bautista graces one side, with the wonderful image of Santiago Matamoros, or Saint James on the verso. The paintings are oil on metal with exquisite detailing. This wonderful relicario is displayed in the original hand formed silver case with the images protected under (replacement) glass. This is indeed a beautiful devotional treasure!
Measurements: 4 1/4" with suspension loop, image size is 3 1/8" diameter
