An exhibition of equal interest to clergy and collectors is the display of antique chalices, now placed on view by Messrs. Harman & Lambert (177, New Bond Street, W.1). Until lately in private hands, the collection comprises many rare and beautiful examples, not only of pre- and post-reformation types in England, but also of varieties from different parts of the Continent. All are picked pieces and the collection is one well worth a visit.
The usual half-yearly meeting of the subscribers of the Goldsmiths' and Jewellers' Annuity and Asylum Institution was held on the 30th August at the Horological Institute, Northampton Square. The chair, in the absence of the President, Mr. Geo. Lambert, was occupied by Mr. C. H. Seeker. Four male and two female annuitants were elected, and one male inmate for the Asylum.
