A Tiffany Bas-Relief Sculpture of the Angels of the Liturgy

7,250.00

Made in 1942, this gilt and silvered plaque, features eleven angels carrying the instruments of the Catholic Mass, and is encased in a purpose-made walnut box lined with velvet and stamped by the maker, Tiffany and Company. The sculpture was a gift to Thomas G. Hagerty, a Catholic priest based in Brooklyn, and includes two statements in Latin. The first, on the exterior, is from the Book of Proverbs 27: "Qui custos est domini sui glorificabitur" (i.e. He that is the keeper of his master, shall be glorified.") The second, on a plaque below the sculpture, quotes the Apostle Paul describing Christ's role as Redeemer advocate for the sinner: "Victima sacerdotii sui et sacerdos victima sua" (i.e. "He is the Priest and victim of his own sacrifice.")

Date: 1942

Dimensions: 10 x 17 x 11 in.
