Soon-to-be-Ordained Usus Antiquior Priest Seeks Chalice

A young deacon who belongs to one of the Ecclesia Dei institutes, and who is due to be ordained to the priesthood early this summer, is looking for a chalice and is wondering if any reader on the NLM might be able to help him find what he is looking for.

His ideal is that he would love to find a 17th-18th century French or Italian style of chalice (see image to right for a general sense) -- and ideally as well, he would also like it to be an original from the 17th-18th centuries.

He is after a chalice that is either sterling or gilt.

I should note as well that while the above is his ideal, he is willing to entertain other proposals as well.

The young deacon is question has a donor who will provide funds for the purchase -- price dependent it goes without saying.
