Small leather and material reliquary containing some objects related to St Bernadette Soubirous and St Therese of Lisieux.

Embossed at the front in gold letters 'Rien ici-bas n'approche de la beauté que j'ai vue'. It translates as: Nothing on earth comes close to the beauty I have seen'. Bernadette Soubirous is supposed to have said that sentence. A capital B is at the back.

For St Bernadette Soubirous there is a card with a piece of cloth that belonged to her and a small envelope behind also contains some cloth. The envelop is sealed so i can't check but I can feel something inside. Both relics have the stamp of 'Maison mère des soeurs de la charité de Nevers' (Motherhouse of the Sisters of Charity of Nevers).

On the other side, there is an image of St Bernadette Soubirous. Behind is a pink envelope with some rose petals that were on St Therese of Lisieux' grave. Sealed with a label from the carmelite monastery of Lisieux.

They are all 'official' relics that were widely available in the early 20th century.

Scratches and signs of age and use. Protective plastic has yellowed.

Size folded 4 x 4.5 cm / 1.57 x 1.57 inches
