Communion set in silver-plate containing chalice, footed paten and bottle of wine (still with contents – which would need to be emptied before any shipping!). This set was presented to H.B. Haynes, Oct 29, 1899. H. Botting Haynes became a Deacon in 1899 and is thought to have been mainly based at St Luke’s Anglican Church, Sussex Street, Sydney. The leatherette box has a domed top with the initials ‘H.B.H.’ in faded gilt. The interior is lined with deep blue velvet. Each item has the symbolic ‘I H S’ with a starburst and the footed paten has an engraving for Reverend Haynes on the undersurface and marks for maker and silver-plate as can be seen in the image. This set would have been used for home or hospital visits. The condition of the box is good for age with wear to the lining as shown in one image. The actual pieces are in very good condition. Width of box 4.25 ins (10.5cm) x 3 ins (7.5cm) x 3.25 ins (8.25cm). Weight 342 grams. This item can be seen in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 190. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $53.50 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
