Sterling Silver and Quartz Chalice - Arts and Crafts Style - Antique George V

An exceptional, fine and impressive antique George V English sterling silver and quartz chalice in the Arts and Crafts style; an addition to our religious silverware collection

SKU C7585


This exceptional antique George V sterling silver ecclesiastical chalice has a circular rounded form onto a globular knop and subtly tapering pedestal to a swept circular foot.

The surface of the chalice has a planished finish in the Arts and Crafts style.

The pedestal of the chalice is ornamented with a globular quartz crystal knop, flanked with applied bead decorated borders.

The swept pedestal is further encircled with engraved and pierced decorated geometric motifs.

The impressive spreading foot is ornamented with an impressive applied silver gilt staurogram*, in addition to the contemporary engraved inscription 'Presented to Holy Souls' - Wilpshire, by the family of FR William James Dorran (1938-98), please pray for him and for Canon William Dorran (1890-55)'.

The circular drinking vessel retains the original gilt interior.

This exceptional arts and crafts silver chalice with quartz is fitted to a hinged leatherette presentation box, with a satin and velvet lined interior; this box is from a similar period.

The interior of the box bears the retailer's mark 'Francis Tucker & Co Ltd, Cricklewood Lane, N.W.2, London'.

NOTE: * A staurogram, otherwise known as a monogrammatic cross or tau-rho, is a ligature composed of a superposition of the Greek letters tau (Τ) and rho (Ρ). The Greek word stauros translates to 'cross' in English and some sources indicate that this symbol was used as a visual representation of Jesus Christ on the cross.

Maker: Frank Morton Crookes

Date: 1934
