Description

This is a silver box, perhaps a reliquary, with detailed engravings of Saint Margaret on one side and Saint Catherine of Alexandria on the other; both are holding objects which tell of the way in which they were killed (both were martyrs). The box itself has two flaps on opposite sides that both open, causing the box to be opened as a book is opened.
