Cross, Quarr Abbey
We have had several commissions
from Quarr Abbey (should you ever have a chance
to visit, look at the hand beaten silverware on
the altar), but the most memorable is the one
This fine silver cross was commissioned
as a gift for the Abbot of a monastery in Chile.
The cross has a hidden reliquary (compartment)
which contains a fragment of clothing once worn
by Edward the Confessor.
The Abbot has since died and was
buried with the cross still about his neck.
