Theca with first class relic of Saint Ursula

Italian oval glass-fronted silver reliquary theca housing ex ossibus relic of Saint Ursula. The relic is identified on a paper cedula as S. Ursulae V. M. (Saint Ursula Virgin and Martyr) and secured by perfectly preserved seal of red Spanish wax with coat of arms of Luigi Fransoni († 1862) Archbishop of Turin (1832-1862).

Saint Ursula is a Romano-British Christian saint. Because of the lack of definite information about the anonymous group of holy virgins who on some uncertain date were killed at Cologne, their commemoration was omitted from the General Roman Calendar when it was revised in 1969, but they have been kept in the Roman Martyrology. She is a patron saint of Cologne, England, archers, orphans, students, Binangonan, Rizal.
