The surface is engraved with the crucifixion scene, showing St John the Baptist and a bishop at the foot of Christ’s cross. It is inlaid with black enamel and the shape is a ‘tau’ cross, which is linked to St Anthony. This would be an exquisite gift for a local history enthusiast - perhaps even a resident of Matlaske itself - a museum supporter or even a unique way to let someone know you think they are a bit of a saint. Adopters of this gold-level item will be invited to exclusive talks and events to learn more about its fascinating history.

The minimum donation to become a Gold Adopter of this object is £500. After clicking 'Donate', please enter this amount before continuing. Donations under the suggested amount will still count towards our target but will be considered a donation rather than an adoption.
