Extremely fine and rare mid 19th century Andean relicario with 'Our Lady of Copacabana' on one face and 'Saint Francis' on the other. These beautiful miniature images were hand painted on a thin sliver of translucent 'naca' (mother of pearl) by a skilled artisan who used a single horsehair as a brush. The 'naca' is displayed behind the original crystal inside the original 18 karat yellow gold case - a beautiful work of art in itself.
Dimensions: approximately 1 inch.
Condition: in excellent, original condition.
