A rare sapphire-mounted gold reliquary pendant showing a nativity scene.  Early 15th century, English.  Joanna of Navarre had more than one reliquary pendant, as a gift from Henry IV, although we know that most of Joanna's were heavily jewelled.  This one was originally enamelled.  The back which would have helped to contain the relic is now missing.  It was purchased from Sotherby's in 2005 and so is in a private collection.
