This reliquary would have been carried on the person and held often during prayer. A treasured possession.  Shaped like a book with Holy Mary and infant Jesus in répoussé design on the front The catch is sound.

I have not polished it as this would remove the traces of touch which are part of its history. 
it measures 4cm 1.5" by 3cm 1.25"
