This is one of the tiniest antique French cross reliquaries I have come across. OOAK less than 1.5 inches tall. Hand engraved with a sacred heart exploding towards the heavens, three arrows. Underneath a reed with with 4 balanced leaves. At center on the reverse a crown a of thorns. Physical suffering wasn't enough for the Romans, the crown of the thorns was fashioned for humiliation. In the bible thorns came to symbolize the sins of humanity and the crown of thorns, Jesus suffering for our sins. There are 3 tear shaped symbols surrounding the crown. I don't know if they are instead flames? The LORD is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? (Psalm 27:1, NIV)

Ships with tracking and insurance, wrapped for presentation.

Circa 1850. The bail is new.

I have not attempted to open the secret compartment. It appears to be fused.

    The packaging was so beautiful, I had to force myself to open it, but it took 8hrs😀. I was thrilled with the detail on this exact replica of anYAD. This had to be a labor intensive endeavor and well worth. I have known Jes for a long time and she is about as good as it gets.

    If you like the unusual, this shop is a must.

    Thank you for another stellar amulet.

    Item is exactly as described. I was looking for a cross but wasn't sure what I wanted. The seller was very helpful. I would buy this product again and from this seller.
