Silver replica of a chalice with embossed flowers, spirals, shells and emblems, a skillfully crafted example of the rococo style. The original features the date 1756 scratched on the rim, and stamps that indicate it was manufactured in Constantinople. The chalice for holy water is one of the ecclesiastical vessels placed in the centre of the Communion Table. Such chalices were made in a great variety of sizes and designs.
The original is one of the treasures brought to Greece by the Greek refugees from Asia Minor.
