On the Feast of the Epiphany

On the Feast of the Epiphany of the Lord, we are pleased to present these vestments, recently completed for an English customer.  Our customer commissioned the vestments in the Studio's  Saint Giles style, as a gift for a priest of the Oxford Oratory.

The chasuble (shewn adjacent), was sewn from an Italian lampas in colours of silver, straw and taupe and was ornamented with an orphrey in blue with medallions in applique-work.  A galloon based on the work of AWN Pugin outlined this orphrey. The vestments were lined in a blue silk taffeta of a vibrant shade common in the mediaeval period.

Our customer kindly supplied us with a photograph of the vestments being worn for the celebration of Mass (during the Christmas Octave in the private chapel of his London residence), which are grateful to reproduce below.
