This beautiful Chasuble originates from Spain and dates back to the 18th Century. It is opulently embroidered with real Silver and Gold thread. The Metallic Floral Stumpwork is conducted magnificently in typical High Baroque Designs. It is made out of fine silk. The embroidery is conducted in wonderful three dimensional raised padded Gold and Silver.
The chasuble is the outermost liturgical vestment worn by clergy for the celebration of the Eucharist in Western-tradition Christian Churches that use full vestments, primarily in the Roman Catholic, Anglican and Lutheran churches. In the Eastern Churches of Byzantine Rite, the equivalent vestment is the phelonion.
"The vestment proper to the priest celebrant at Mass and other sacred actions directly connected with Mass is, unless otherwise indicated, the chasuble, worn over the alb and stole" (General Instruction of the Roman Missal, 337). Like the stole, it is normally of the liturgical colour of the Mass being celebrated.
Very good Antique condition with signs of general wear commensurate with a textile that has been worn handled and displayed for over 250 years. Only a few areas with small damages. Some thread bear in the back. (Please see pictures)
