Reliquary, anonymous, c. 1450

copper (metal), h 12.5cm × w 9cm × d 7.3cm. More details

This miniature bust houses the relics of an unknown bishop saint. The assumption that this was Saint Lambert and that the reliquary came from the treasury of the basilica of Saint Servatius in Maastricht cannot be proven. The small lion feet are later additions.
