Simple silver-plated metal or alpaca chalice made in Zaragoza, Spain circa 1950. This chalice stands out for its good condition and fine design, sober and stylized. It is accompanied by a gilt-metal paten, also finely preserved. The chalice is perfect as a portable or travel item it is a sturdy piece with scarcely any decorative elements which could be damaged when carried. The silvery surface shows a deep shine and a uniform and regular look which turn this chalice into a very attractive piece. The circular foot bears a simple hand-engraved cross at the front, with the letters CMCA and the Crismon (the Greek letters which make up the monogram of Christ, XP). The stem has a simple circular node; the cup which stands on it is stylized and bears no decorated subcup, as usual. Near the edge we can see two clear marks. Under the foot we find the initials UDMC and the engraved word GORDEJUELA, the name of an ancient jewelry located in Zaragoza, Spain, not open any more. For its sturdiness and its elegant simplicity, this silver-plated metal or alpaca chalice deserves to belong to a priest who appreciates well-designed objects.
