The Ciborium – A sacred vessel employed during distribution of Holy Communion in the Mass and also for the reservation of the Sacred Hosts in the Tabernacle.
This lovely specimen is simple and elegant.
The lid is surmounted by a ‘gothic’-styled cross within a sphere.
The decorated stem is not only visually appealing, but also provides a very adequate form to allow for a firm grip whilst in use.
The quality can be both seen and felt in this beautifully crafted piece.
