Container for consecrated hosts from the elaborate composition of the foot and of the knot, where appear cherubs alternated with bunches of grapes and sheal of wheat between rich spirals made with finest chisel. On top of the lid, the symbol of the sacrifice of Christ: a pelican who pecks her breast. On the bottom are visible early 19th century Neapolitan stamps.
