Description


This very fine three piece Victorian sterling silver travel communion set is fitted to the original hinged leatherette box with a velvet lined interior.


The set consists of a chalice, standing paten and wine flask.


Each piece is embellished with profuse vine and fruit bright cut engraved decoration incorporating a circular hand engraved 'IHS' sunburst motif.


The scalloped edged standing paten is inscribed to the underside of the foot 'Presented to the Revd. J W Pengelly, Incumbent of St Michaels Church Blackburne by the candidates for the confirmation & friends Oct 13th 1848'.


The wine flask has a panelled tapering cylindrical form with a flared, scalloped base.

Condition


This very fine three piece set is the 'Rolls Royce' in communion sets.

The set is an extremely good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.

The bright cut engraved decoration to each piece is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the flask and chalice, and to the underside of the paten are all very clear.

Part hallmarks struck to the underside of the flask are also very clear.

The exterior of the box is in excellent condition, but there are signs of wear in keeping with the age of this piece, to the interior of the box.


Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of these items.
