Italian, 17th Century, Embroidered Chalice Veil worked in Silks and Gold
An outstanding example of Italian silk embroidery on a 17th century mounted chalice veil. The ground of cream-colored silk, representing life, is worked in colored silks with a symmetrical pattern of tulips and other flowers springing from leafy stems all outlined with gold gilt thread. Centered is the sun worked in fine gold threads with a central flower rather than IHS, which is more seen, making this veil less religious in appearance. Edged with a gold torchon lace, mounted on a rich blue silk and ready for hanging.
