French Sterling and Vermeil Paten #3
This is the largest of three French patens or host plate made of sterling silver with vermeil (gilt) overlay, 5 3/4" in diameter, with a simple front design; the verso is heavily engraved with IHS and the Sacred Heart, surrounded by the crown of thorns; truly a beautiful piece of silver workmanship. It is hallmarked for Minerva (.925 solid silver) and weighs 127 grams. It is part of a trio of French patens that I am offering. I always wanted to have these mounted on lucite stands, and display them together, but that hasn't happened and so I am parting with them.
