This is an antique hand painted religious icon box made of wood and metal. I believe that this is dated to the early 19th century and that the names are in Latin for St.
John and Mary, but Im not 100% sure. Also on the backside near the top of the image of the Holy Grail is the initial IHS. The Christogram IHS is a monogram symbolizing Jesus Christ. This is a really interesting box. Ive never seen one like it!
