A gorgeous old hand made Priest 's Chasuble with matching Manipule found in Lima, Peru, on a recent buying trip. We have had a collector of Religious Vestments view this item and he dates it to the mid to late 1700's. Obviously there are wear/age signs on the chasuble but overall the condition is outstanding for it's over 200 years of age. Note the Fleur de Lis decoration ....possibly signifying French origins? Chasuble length is 45 inches.
