Enquire About This Item

A first world war military chaplains chalice. For holy communion in the field of battle, it is marked on the base with the ministry of defence broad arrow and engraved on the foot is a maltese cross.

These communion chalices were issued as part of a kit during wwI to chaplains attached to various fighting units (one of which can be seen in the imperial war museum).

This one has clearly been used extensively, with heavy tarnishing around the lip where wine has been imbibed, and on the shaft where held.

A poignant, tangible reminder that on the battlefield, there are no athiests.

 

140mm tall (5-1/2")

82mm across bowl (3-1/4")

87mm across bottom (3-1/2")

 

Heavily tarnished in places through use, on lip and inside bowl. No cracks or damage.
