Antique Spanish Reliquary and Baby Jesus

Arm Reliquary, 13th century, with 15th C additions. French Silver, silver-gilt, glass and rock-crystal cabochons over wood core. Glistening silver, rock crystal, and glass gems enliven this reliquary in the form of an arm raised in a gesture of blessing. Emblematic of priestly authority, arm reliquaries were placed at the altar and also processed among the faithful. A parchment tag behind the rock crystal and an engraved cuff at the wrist indicate that the relics contained were of Saint Fiacre.
