Pair Of Monstrance-reliquaries With 22 Capsules - 18th Century

A superb Italian work, probably from Tuscany. This exceptional pair of Monstrances- reliquaries is in carved, gilded and multi-lobed wood decorated with acanthus leaves and rockeries. It houses 22 embedded reliquary medallions containing so-called exiguous relics of 37 Saints or Martyrs.
Thus accompany us, through their bones or clothing, the following Holy Men:

From the mantle of Saint Joseph Saint Catherine Venerable Saint Mary Magdalene de Pazzi Saint Coronat Saint Celsi Saint Innocent Martyr. Ex-ossibus of Saint Dominici Conf. Ex- ossibus of Saint Petranij Ep.Bon Ex-ossibus of Saint Andrew the Apostle Saint Antonij Palav de cappas Saint Antonin Ar. PLO- Ex-ossibus of Saint Zenobe bishop of Florence. Saint Peter the Apostle Saint Paul the Apostle. Ex-ossibus of S.Antonij Abbot Saint Philippi Neri – Ex-ossibus of Saint Catherine VM Saint Francis de Sales - Saint Ira i in Ep Martyr Saint Celestine Saint Francis – Saint Andrae Saint Mary Magdalene de Pazzi - Saint M.Magi de Pen Saint Jacob Martyr Saint Andrew Apostle. Saint John the Baptist Saint Nicolas of Tolentino Saint Philippi Neri Ex-ossibus of the Saints Innocent Martyrs Ex-ossibus of Saint Laurent
On the back are almost as many episcopal seals of red wax as capsules which attest to the presence of the relic (however missing a seal ).

Three later authentic ones confirm the quality of the relics presented and more especially that of Saint Philippe de Neri (authentic from 1868), those of Saint Jean Baptiste by Archbishop Marie-Alphonse Sonnois, born in 1828 and a last one from 1855 consecrating the relics of Saint Paul the apostle.
Dimensions of 53 cm by 24.
Very good condition – tiny losses.
