Monstrance No. 1

This monstrance is typical of the French Gothic style so popular one hundred years ago and more. The six-sided base rises to a distinct node and display area of delicately crafted open tracery work. There is a removable lunette for the host that slides easily into place.

This monstrance measures 20-1/8" high by 8-1/2" wide and can be made in either brass or sterling silver. As pictured to the left, the monstrance is entirely goldplated, except for the figure of the Sacred Heart and the Dove, representing the Holy Spirit which are both silverplated. Other finishes are available on request.

In brass, 24 karat goldplated, the cost is $6,495.00. We are happy to quote a price on request using sterling silver in place of the brass, finished in a 24 karat goldplate.

This monstrance is handcrafted, allowing for custom modifications when required.

























Monstrance No. 2

This monstrance is the product of a master silversmith. Richly worked in minute detail the piece measures 21-1/2" high by 7" wide at the head. This is a treasure of rich Gothic filigree open work. The luna area is adorned with a colorful cloisonné fire enamel halo. The separate lunette is goldplated

Because of the great fluctuations in the silver market, we will quote the price for this made entirely of sterling silver, as shown.

Available in other finishes on request.




The word monstrance comes from the Latin monstrare meaning to show. Today, monstrance is the common term for the vessel in which the consecrated host is exposed for the adoration of the faithful.  it is highly probable that such vessels began to be constructed in the thirteenth century, and there are some of these still in existence — for example, an octagonal monstrance at Bari, Italy, bearing: the words "Hic Corpus Domini" — which may date from that time.
