A Victorian Reliquary

1 3/8" x 1" x 2 7/8"

Not a religious reliquary, as far as I'm aware, but possibly a remembrance of a loved one lost at the edge of Empire, and the entire preserved corpse impractical to ship home. The card and paper case holds a bone skull that sits on a sliding platform controlled by a brass rod. The skull id fixed to the platform but the platform can be removed from the case.

The case itself is lined with marbled tan and gold lokta paper and bound in dark metallic green paper embossed with a lizard skin pattern. The case has antiqued brass feet and corner decorations.
