The Victoria and Albert Museum in London presently have on display "The Poor Clare's Reliquary" (above).
Scholars are divided as to whether:
1. it was made as a reliquary or a salt cellar;
2. was it made by the Royal Goldsmith Affabel Partridge, at a time when Catholics in England were being persecuted
In 1737, the vessel was given to the Poor Claes in Rouen. In 1741 it was made into a reliquary to house relics given to the Convent in Rouen by James Stuart, the Old Pretender.
It is thought by some that Partridge may have intended the vessel to be a reliquary but disguised it as a salt cellar to throw the anti-Catholic authorities off the scent.
