Chalice from St. Mary’s Church in Ribnitz

gilded silver, Rostock 1570, height: 26 cm

The chalice was a gift from the last abbess of the Poor Clare Convent in Ribnitz, Duchess Ursula of Mecklenburg (1510-1586), to the town church in Ribnitz in 1570. The convent had patronage over St. Mary’s Church. The abbess thus ensured that she would remain in lasting remembrance.
