Red and Gold: A Selection of Eighteenth Century Vestments

Some of the vestments we have shown here are something of some historical note or perhaps demonstrative of some particular style that we have wanted to bring to our readers' attention, but aside from these there are also a great many other instances where we have no other purpose or reason to show them than simply for their quality and beauty.

These next examples all fall into that category, each coming from the Eighteenth Century, and each in red with gold thread embroidery -- a colour combination that  can be particularly stunning. While none of them are uniquely of any special note, they are all noble and beautiful and each have their own particular character that sets them apart from the other.

Enjoy.  Perhaps these might also serve as inspiration for our current generation of priests and liturgical artists.
