Product Description

The origin of Ardagh chalice goes back to the second phase of the Christian Era, during the beginning of the VIII century. It was discovered in the late XIX century in Ireland by a small boy that was digging potatoes in Reerasta Rath, near the village of Ardagh. The chalice seemed a treasure that most likely belonged to a rich and well established Irish monastery. Its unique low design with two handles, hand forged construction in solid silver, deeply engraved celtic ornamentation and fire enamelled cobouchons make this chalice the most important and richest of the first Irish Christian objects and clearly one of the finest metal pieces from the VIII century that has been discovered so far.

The simplified version of the Ardagh chalice is 24 Kt gold plate contrasting on silver plate and available in silver plated brass or with sterling silver inner cup.

Also Ciborium and Open Ciborium available (not pictured). See prices in the drop-down menu.
