This is a highly unusual vestment that dates to the late 19th/early 20th c. The crimson color of the background silk with roundels of peace doves combined with the embroidery, couching and metallic ribbon and applique handwork, in addition to the application of myriad color paste stones, make this a truly unique textile. For the ease of photography, I have folded the beautifully worked sleeves over the shoulder section; the sleeves are worked both front and back. The back of the vestment is in excellent condition with a small bit of fading at the edges of the hem. The front of the vestment has suffered from the effects of many years of the Gospel being carried on the left arm of the priest. Only the left side of the background silk has been affected. This truly amazing textile could be made into several beautiful pillows and/or runners; the perfect back portion could be framed as art.  More photos are available upon request.
Thanks for looking.
