I am very interested in finding out more information on this reliquary, however I am having trouble finding it in the current Culny collection. Do you have any more information such as name and place of origin so that I can do further research?

I did a bit of checking and the Wikimedia Commons page had it at the Cluny. Seems it was there for a temporary exhibit, on loan from the National Museum of Denmark. 11th century, probably Scottish or Irish. Runic inscription on the bottom: "Rannveig owns this."
