Antique Communion Ware
I am hoping you could help provide me with some information on a few items I inherited from my father when he passed on. Below I have provided some pictures of this item and the stamp on the bottom of the chalice. I believe it was used by one of my grandfathers past, they were all ministers in the Lutheran Religion. Our family name is Koehler and can be looked up at the Concordia Institute website. I do not know exactly what it was used for I can only guess it was for communion and I believe it dates back to the late 1800s.
If you can assist me with an exact name or worth of this item I would be so grateful. If there are further questions you have about this item, please email me a reply with a phone number and I will give you a call.
