The origin of this famous chalice can be traced back to
the Duke Tassilo III of Bavaria, Germany,VIII Century. It
is one of the most important treasures of this era even
though it was not known of until the XI or XII Century.
It is the symbol of the wedding between the Duke Tassilo
III, from the Agilolfing dynasty that governed Bavaria
and Liutpirc, the daughter of the Lombardian King
Desiderius, and was presented by them in 777 to the
Monastery of Kremsmünster (Germany) where it is still
The only modification to this original chalice is the fact
that the wording on the base from the original Tassilo
chalice (+ TASSILO DVX FORTIS + LIUTPIRC VIRGA
REGALIS +) has been changed to the Latin text PER
IPSUM CUM IPSO IN IPSO + meaning FOR HIM WITH
HIM IN HIM +, of important meaning in liturgy, thus
making our version more appropriate for its use in a
liturgical catholic service. Our chalice is also slightly
smaller in size, making it easier to use during the services
than the original of considerably larger dimensions. The
design and style of the figures present on our chalice are
sensibly more refined and symmetrical than those of the
original, of a more primitive design.
