19th Century Coin Silver Communion Plate will make a great addition to your devotional collection, or a splendid gift to the church!  Crafted from .800 fine silver, or 80% silver alloy, it features a rounded form with cross design and beautiful embossing at the center that combines rosebuds with spirals, another cross symbol, and four amethyst-colored crystals as decoration.  Note the hand-chasework that permeates the design indicative of a talented artisan using relatively primitive tools.  Used to serve unleavened bread during the communion celebration, such relics are considered indispensable to all Christian churches.
Circa 1880s
