Story

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.
