The sisters from the Discalced Carmelite Convent of Ayacucho have gatd up for auction a few more sterling silver and carved alabaster reliquaries. These are all original Spanish Colonial pieces that we have had restored by replacing the broken glass and sometimes the worn bails. Some never had glass, so we added the glass to protect the carvings from damage. They were donated to the convent by families from the town of Ayacucho , to help with the continued funding of their soup-kitchen.

These were originally carved and painted by nuns from the very same convent over 200 years ago, so it is only right that they should have been donated to help out the sisters.

This one holds a carving of Saint Francis and an Archangel. We replaced the glass on this one.

Its size is 2.25 inches without the bail and it weighs 23.3 grams.

Good luck bidding!
