19th century Baroque style monstrance in silver plate
Nineteenth century Baroque style French silver plate (very distressed) and vermeil (silver gilt) monstrance decorated with cherubs. The rays of the radiant sun is typically 19th century French design, as well as the lamb of god decoration to the base.
The centre of the Monstrance is surrounded with rays, surmounted with a cross. In the middle of the rays, the central luna aperture is surrounded with raised cherub faces in clouds. The luna (which is missing) is surrounded by wheat and grape images, an emblem of the Eucharist. The wheat (the host) and the chalice of wine (grapes) representing blood of Christ. The base stands on four lion paw feet.
