St. Thomas Shrine mounted on blue card

St. Thomas Shrine mounted on blue card

Based on a 15th century Pilgrim’s Badge. Cast in lead, these holy emblems or badges were collected by pilgrims much as we would collect souvenirs of a place we have visited. Probably made between 1350 and 1400, the badge shows Thomas Becket’s elaborate shrine in Canterbury Cathedral. It gives the impression of the shrine seen by mediaeval pilgrims - with the domed chest containing the sacred bones, encrusted with jewels.

Fixing Points: One hole: at the top between the two boats

Dimensions: 7.8cm x 10.1cm
