Dutch Chalice Who made it?

Post by rtw188 »

Hello I recently acquired a Dutch Chalice made in 1905 and am having trouble finding any information on the silversmith who made it.

it says the following on the bottom of the chalice as seen in the pictures:
L. Firlefyn
Orfeore
St. Denis-Westrem
1905


It also says: "Piam in memoriam, Rev. D. Raum. Autam, patrini sui, hunc calicem confici curavit Joseph Nelis, neo sacerdos – 1905"

Could someone please help me find who the silversmith was?

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

It's Belgian. The silversmith was Leopold Firlefijn (Firlefyn).

See: https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopold_Firlefijn
