Favourite Item
This exceptional antique Charles I sterling silver chalice has a tapering cylindrical bell shaped form onto a circular knopped pedestal and domed circular foot.

The surface of this chalice is plain and encircled with bands of tooled decoration.

This antique chalice has a fine colour and patination*.

This 17th century chalice is one of the finest of its type you could hope to acquire; early pieces such as this are often crudely crafted and a poor quality, this particular piece however is in exceptional condition.

* Patination or Patina is a subtle colouration or tarnish which forms on the surface of some metals, produced by oxidation or other chemical processes. A good patina proffers an aesthetically pleasing look.

NOTE: After surviving the Great Fire of London the records at the London Assay office were destroyed by fire in 1681; their catalogues and documentation began again in 1697. Due to this unfortunate event we are unable to associate a maker to this chalice.
