Gilt Carved Wooden Baroque Reliquary with a Major Relic of Apostle Saint Barnabas, Housed in an Elaborate 18th Century Florentine Silver Filigree Theca Composed of Two Pieces of Carved Rock Crystal

An outstanding carved and gilt wooden monstrance reliquary, probably Northern Italy, circa 1710 – 1730, in the form of a tripod pedestal vase with the sanctuary window of clear glass on the front and frosted glass on the rear. The reliquary stands approximately 57 cm tall on a 23 cm by 13.5 cm base , and there has been a minor repair accomplished on the rear foot of the tripod. The overall condition is very good, and the impression is extremely pleasing. The reliquary houses an exceptional and large Florentine filigreed silver theca, with elaborate silver floral- and scrollwork surrounding two carved pieces of rock crystal. The theca’s overall dimensions are 55 mm by 45 mm. The theca holds a large and significant ex ossibus relic of the Apostle, Saint Barnabas, who is clearly identified by the recto cedula as [ex] Os[sibus] S. Barnabae, and on the verso cedula as Apostol. The complex theca is further embellished with sweet-water pearls and probable garnets. The theca is sealed with its original 18th century basilical-level red sealing wax seal, all threads intact. The seal is a pendant seal, affixed to a reinforced substrate, and is interlaced through the theca border. The seal appears to be from the Basilica of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme in Rome, with the Elevation of the Cross motif and Defensor Fidei motto. The theca and the seal are in extremely fine condition.
