James and Christopher associated: see
http://www.kornbluthphoto.com/SaintChristopher.html
--a 14th c. ivory of the two saints flanking the Virgin and Child, and a 
c.1490 polychromed wood figure of Christopher with what look like shells 
on his pouch. (They could also be money bags, but why would those be

James with pilgrims, 13th-c. glass cameo:
