Unusual pair matched reliquaries--triangularly shaped with old hand made glass-German--honors the holy family-Mary and Christ in one and St Joseph in the other--all figures are in wax to include additional wax medallions--wax has become partially distorted over the years--Additionally each reliquary has a major relic above each figure that is wrapped in cloth with paper banners I cannot read--inside of reliquaries have not been disturbed--outside have had restorations--given the shape and size the pair would look sensational on a fireplace or table -18.50 inches high 14.50 wide and 5.25 inches deep
