Oval glass-fronted brass pendant reliquary theca housing the first-class ex carne (of the flesh) pre-canonization relic of Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen. A substantial relic is affixed to the center of the theca surrounded by silver wire ornamentation and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as B. Fidelis // M. Capucc: (the Blessed Fidelis, Martyr & Capuccin).  On the back, under a protective cap, the theca is secured with a seal of red Spanish wax bearing an imprint of a coat of arms of Father Antonino Serafino Camarda O.P.
