A truly magnificent Monstrance, consisting of a frame of sun rays encircling a round glass window, resting on a fairly ordinary round base and stem. Monstrances (from the Latin monstrare meaning to show) were designed during the medieval period. This vintage collectible would have most likely been used in a Catholic church, placed on the altar as a focus for worship, or held up during church processions for all the congregation to see. The function of a monstrance is to display the Sacred Host, bread which is miraculously transformed into the body of Christ during the service of Mass. The Host would have been placed inside the window in the crescent-shaped holder called a 'lunula'.
