Favourite Item
This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver communion set consists of a chalice, paten and wine phial/flask.

The chalice has a circular rounded form onto a knopped pedestal and spreading foot with a collet style rim.

The interior of the chalice retains the original gilding.

The paten has a circular tazza shaped form to a plain circular spreading foot.

The rim of the paten is embellished with an applied moulded border.

Both the paten and chalice are ornamented with a fine and impressive bright cut engraved hexadecagon sunburst motif with the initials 'ihs'* to the centre in addition to a cross pattee and three geometric motifs.

This antique communion set further benefits from the original faceted glass phial/flask.

The flask retains the original glass stopper and plain cylindrical sterling silver screw fit cover.

The communion set is fitted to the original hinged leatherette box with velvet and satin interior, securing with two swivel catches.

* IHS comes from the first three letters of the Latinised version 'IHSOUS' of the Greek spelling 'ΙΗΣΟΥΣ', which translates as the Holy Name of Jesus. Many perceive these initials to delineate the Latin phrase 'Iesus Hominum Salvator' meaning 'Jesus the Savior of all Men', which is not historically accurate.
