1803 Vatican documented reliquary theca with relics of the Vestment of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Oval silver crystal-fronted reliquary housing the first-class ex Veste (of the vestment) relic of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The relic is affixed to the background of red silk ground surrounded by silver wire ornamentation and identified in Latin on a bi-color manuscript cedula label as B. M. V.  (the Blessed Virgin Mary). On the back, the theca is secured with a seal of red Spanish wax bearing an imprint with a coat of arms of Cardinal Giulio Maria Cardinal della Somaglia (†1830), Cardinal-Priest of Santa Maria sopra Minerva and Vicar General of the Vatican under Pope Pius VII. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued by Monsignor della Somaglia in 1803.

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.
