Here is a fascinating religious item that was commonly used during wars by soldiers because of it's small size and easy portability. This case has a removable miniature crucifix/cross with Jesus. This is one of the best examples of a pocket shrine I have found, and the only one that I have seen with a Crucifix inside. [Generally you might find an Infant of Prague or Saints.]

DETAILS: An extremely tiny silver colored metal case is stamped with "GERMANY" on the reverse. Front has a window of red glass, which is bordered by a gold or copper colored trim to give great contrast. There is a radiating cross stamped below the window. The inside of the case is lined with a velvety material in a royal purple color. Crucifix stands on it's own and is also stamped with "GERMANY." Amazing detail on the cross. Case and cross are made of metals, but there are no stamps to indicate type.

MEASUREMENTS: Case measures about 1-3/8ths by 5/8ths inches. Cross measures 1-1/8th inch tall.

ERA: Research leads me to believe this to be WWII era, possibly earlier.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition. Some surface scratches and dark areas of patina that are typical for a vintage item. See detail photos.
