A stylish pair of late 18th century Sicilian silver cartaglorias containing the original texts in old fashioned script. The oval bead bordered frames have applied gilt silver swags, leaves and flower motifs, the bases are raised on square supports. The sheet silver frames are pinned onto carved softwood backs. Height 26.7 cms. Width 23 cms. Marked on the bottom left hand corner with "GC" for Guiseppe Caltagirone of Trapani, Sicilia. Circa 1790.

Literature: Normally there would be 3 cartaglorias placed on the altar, usually within a frame, one in the center and two on the sides. These contain formulas and parts of the Missal which are part of the Mass. Most of these formulas are recited by the priest bowed at the altar, the altar cards are then used to recite formulas, without moving the missal to read.
