Chasuble with Corals


The piece of the month for April chosen by MNSR’s social media followers is a silver llama chasuble embroidered with gold, silk threads and coral beads. Coming from Mitra do Porto and integrated into the Museum’s collection in 1938, the chasuble was acquired by D. Frei José Maria da Fonseca e Évora, bishop of Porto between 1740 and 1752.
