A 19th Century Chasuble in Silver Lamé

As we have pointed out before, chasubles of silver cloth are not particularly common all things considered. Far more common is white or gold. As such, I am always interested in pointing out examples when they turn up. This particular example comes from Aquitaine and dates to 1863-1879.

The chasuble is designed in the French style and cut and includes both silver and gold lamé.

A detail better shows the IHS monogram surrounded by the crown of thorns and radiating beams of light.
