Rare French antique reliquary. Paperolles.

Dating from the late 19thCentury this is a devotional reliquary with four relics.
The words written on the 4 pieces of paper just say Saintes reliques (or Holy relics) with no mention of a specific saint or place. They might come from the Holy Land.
There seem to be stones, clothes and some earth in some cloth...

There is very little damage to the paperolles.
Some dust under the glass and on the burgundy velvet background.

Velvet a bit damaged at the bottom and small scratches on the frame but otherwise in very good condition.
Probably not the original frame has the glass is too small and is stuck almost 1 cm away from it. It stays in place really well but the velvet part could be removed very easily and placed in another frame as it's not attached to anything.

Can be hung on the wall immediately.

Dimensions:

velvet part: 12.5 x 9.8 cm / 4.72 x 3.54 inches
Frame 19.2 x 16.8 cm / 7.48 x 6.29 inches

The pictures are part of the description.
