Reliquary description

This piece really stands out due to its beautiful combination of gold, silver and silk German fine embroidery which resembles an elaborate rocaille and floral ornamentation.

The relics cases are also from the XVIII Century and they made most in silver and diamond cut thick glass with silver bullion thread at surrounding the center.

With the Holy Relic of Saint Francis of Assisi giving meaning to the whole piece.

We can deduct that at the back of each individual reliquary it is present an episcopal wax seal holding the threads together ensuring the authenticity of the relics, as it is customary for these.
