Spectacular Reliquary Monstrance with a scarce Relic from the Vestment of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Spectacular silvered-bronze reliquary monstrance in a shape of an angel holding wildflowers surmounted by the cross housing scarce precious Ex Veste (from the Vestment) relic of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The relatively large precious relic is placed inside of the glass-fronted oval compartment on a red silk background surrounded by gilt paperolle and silver wire ornamentation and identified on a manuscript paper cedula label as Bmae Virg Mariae  (The Blessed Virgin Mary). On the back, under the protective cap, the reliquary is secured by a seal of red Spanish wax with an imprint of a coat of arms of Bishop Nicola Angelo Maria Landini, O.E.S.A. (†1782), Titular Bishop of Porphyreon and the Vicar General of the Vatican Curia.

The Virgin Mary’s Garment or Vestment is considered among the most significant Marian relics. The feast of the deposition of Mary’s vestment/garment is celebrated on July 2.
