As Lent Begins: 2013

The set of violet vestments shewn in the adjacent photograph was commissioned as a gift for a priest of the Archdiocese of Sydney. This vestment is made from watered taffeta and lined in silver.  It is ornamented with a magnificent  braid, in silver and violet, in first rate condition although 50 years old.
