Morris and Company - Gold frame enclosing a lock of hair

This reliquary of an artistic saint says so much about an age and an outlook on life that are lost.

I can't find out much about it, but given Morris' interested in medieval things I guess it was a deliberate 'imitation'. I have several portrait miniatures with locks of hair on the back.
