An ‘ecclesiastical church set’ is a collection of silver items made for religious organisations such as the Church of England, Roman Catholic church, or the Jewish faith.

They are sometimes over a thousand years old but the vast majority date from the last few centuries and similar items are still being made in silver today.

Such a set can include candlesticks, chalices, flagons and altar serving pieces. In the past, these items would be hand-made and were often based on specific designs passed down through centuries of worship. Subsequently, in the 20th century we have seen designs that vary significantly from the traditional. Examples are some high altar items made for the Church of England during the 1960’s.
