Description


This exceptional vintage Elizabeth II sterling silver gilt communion set consists of a chalice and paten.


The surface of each ecclesiastical piece is embellished with a fine and impressive engraved Chi-Rho symbol*.


The chalice has a circular rounded form onto a knop and spreading pedestal foot and the paten has a plain circular form.


The large cylindrical knop is ornamented with a matte textured design.


The foot of the sterling silver chalice is further embellished with the contemporary engraved initials 'I.H.' and 'J.C.C.'.


This exceptional vintage sterling silver communion set retains the original gilding; this has worn with age in a sympathetic fashion to an aesthetically pleasing mellow colour.


The communion set is fitted to the original hinged leatherette box with velvet and satin interior, securing with a hinged catch; the box retains the original fitted fully working lock and key.


Each piece has been crafted by the renowned Birmingham silversmith A E Jones.


* A Chi-Rho (⳩), also known as chrismon or sigla, is a Christogram formed from the first two Greek letters of the word 'Christ': Chi (χ) and Rho (ρ).
