Gilded silver miniature statue of Saint Eloy. France. 14th century.

A rare gilded and repoussé-work silver miniature statue of Saint Eloy, the patron saint of goldsmiths, metalworkers and coin collectors. The saint is depicted standing , wearing a long garment which is draped into typical gothic folds. His right hand is outstretched and is holding a hammer, while his left hand is held close against his chest and is holding a pair of pliers.

This statue was probably once part of a reliquary casket or travel altar, dedicated to the saint.

France. 2nd half of the 14th century.

Dimensions: height (with stand) 11cm ; height (without stand) 7,7cm ; weight 29,21 grams
