17th Century Rock Crystal Reliquary Pendant
Magnificent in proportions and superb in quality, later 17th century craftsmanship displays its mastery of metalwork and rock crystal carving in the form of a reliquary locket. Within its very deep compartment, the box held a relic or religious object. The pendant is constructed of ten pieces of faceted rock crystal set into brass. Both of the rock crystal covers have a convex surface which creates a somewhat magnified perspective of what may be within the confines. Please note that the hinge is in five parts; most later date hinges typically have three elements). The deep interior provides versatility for object display.
Date: Later 17th century.
Measurements: 1-15/16 inches (5 cm) in length not including top “O” fitting by 1-5/8 inches (4.1 cm) in width by 1-1/16 (2.9 cm) in depth. Weight of 65.7 grams (42.2 dwt).
Condition: Excellent for its age; a few very minor small chips (several just to interior); one hinge closes tight and the other opens easily without resistance.
