This wonderful ciborium was made in London in 1940 and contains rare original racking for the host. Ecclesiastical silver is quite rare on the retail market as most religious institutions usually keep their collections.
The Episcopal Divinity School was formerly the Episcopal Theological School founded in 1867 in Cambridge; it changed its name in 1974 when it combined with the Philadelphia Divinity School which was founded in 1857. In 2018, the school merged with the Union Theological Seminary in New York City and the campus was acquired by Leslie University. For more history of the school, see here.
This lovely ciborium is fully hallmarked. It measures 1.5 inches high by 3.375 inches long and 3.25 inches deep, weighs 10.2 troy ounces and is in excellent condition.
