Description:

Object in the shape of a dove, destined to the reservation of consecrated hosts. It is formed by a central body, which includes in the top part a spherical cavity to receive the Sacred Forms, to which are added as independent pieces both wings, the tail and the beak. The principal body is decorated to chisel by motives that simulate the plumage of the bird. Wings and tail receive decoration with enamel champlevé, with a chromatic notably rich palette.
