1984 Documented reliquary theca with relics of the Servite Saint Antonio Maria Pucci

Round white-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relics of Saint Antonio Maria Pucci. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground surrounded by paperolle ornamentation and identified in Latin on typeset cedula label as S. Ant. M. Pucci C. (St. Antonio Maria Pucci, Confessor)  On the back, under a protective cap, the theca is secured with a seal of red Spanish wax bearing an imprint of a coat of arms of the Order of Servants of Mary (better known as the Servite Order). The relic is accompanied by an original matching authentics document issued and sealed in 1984 by the Postulator General of the Order. 

Saint Antonio Maria Pucci (†1892) was an Italian Roman Catholic priest and a professed member of the Servite Order. Pucci died on 12 January 1892 due to pneumonia. He celebrated Mass on 6 January and that night - during a storm - went to render assistance to an ill person when he contracted pneumonia and grew worse until his death. He was beatified on 12 June 1952 under Pope Pius XII and was later made a saint on 9 December 1962 at the conclusion of the first session of the Second Vatican Council. His feast day is celebrated on January 12.
