When this stole was passed down to me, I was told that the embroidery was French from the 19th Century. The stole itself is obviously worn out (overuse?) but if you are handle with a needle, this beautiful stole could be restored. A lovely project if you have those craft skills.
I personally think all priests should have a purple stole to hand at all times (I keep one in the car and one in the vicarage as part of my pastoral “go-bag”) just so that you can hear impromptu confessions, bless the afflicted and otherwise minister to the wider public.
Out of stock
