Reliquary in the form of a triptych, Anonymous, c. 1400 - 1410

gold (metal), h 12.5cm × w 12.7cm. More details

This miniature altar is one of the most beautiful examples of French goldsmiths’ work from the period around 1400. It may have come from the abbey of Chocques (Pas-de-Calais) and doubtless belonged to someone associated with the Paris court. Seeing Christ’s tormented body, the owner could meditate on his sufferings at any time.
