The Season "Per Annum" 2013 : 1

The chasuble shewn in the adjacent photograph was presented to a Convent in Brisbane, Australia as a Thank-offering on the occasion of a wedding anniversary. The chasuble is made from an English ecclesiastical brocade, lined in red silk and ornamented with a braid in red, blue, white and gold.

This orphrey is formed from one of several braids which were especially designed by the Saint Bede Studio to commemorate the Pugin bicentenary year (2012). This is a free design based on an early Gothic decorative scheme, and features medallions with the MR motif.
