The beautiful and serene photo in this reliquary is an original tintype image from a collection dating to the 1860s.

It shows an unusual pose for the time - a woman resting her head on her hand in a thinking pose. I wonder what she was thinking about?

The reliquary case is solid silver with its original glass intact. The relic inside had deteriorated completely so I removed it and put in this unique OOAK image.

The simple exterior of the reliquary is the perfect frame for this highly detailed antique image. Despite being over 100 years old (19th century) this piece has a modern look - the perfect assemblage.

The reverse side of the reliquary shows a very pretty rendering of miraculous Mary, her arms outstretched in welcome. You could wear this pendant either way, which means this is really two necklaces in one!

The reliquary hangs form a sterling silver chain with sterling clasp. The chain length is 18 inches.

Will come safely packaged and sent with tracking or registered post, depending on the destination.
