In this catalogue, you will find the broadest selection of chalices available in the industry that will enable you to make your important decision. Under special request, many can be modified with countless options to make sure we meet your specific needs. We also specialize in creating bespoke chalices of the highest quality for our customers from scratch.

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 preserved today.

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.

Fire enamelled version of the VIII century Tassilo chalice, executed in cloissonne fire enamel, solid 925 sterling silver, 24K gold lined cup. It features The Messiah and the Four Evangelists on the cup with the inscription in Latin "Per Ipsum, Cum Ipso, In Ipso" (For Him, With HIm, In Him) on the base.
