Object history
The drawing has been scored for transfer. It has been folded up in the centre, possibly to create an offset. The design of this chalice, which is based on Italian 15th Century examples, is close to those designed by A. W. N. Pugin in the 1840s, and made by the firm of John Hardman.



Bought from the dealer Robert Jackson 24th May 1878 with 22 other objects for £1-6-9.
