Postcard of Paten.
© National Museums Scotland


Patens are plates on which the bread is placed in the Eucharist during Mass. This silver gilt example is from St Paul's and St George's Episcopal Church in Edinburgh. It was made in 1721-1722 by Colin MacKenzie, a silversmith in Edinburgh.

The paten has a broad straight stem on a cushion foot. It is engraved with the inscription 'Gifted by David Ross Esqr to the English Chappel in Edinburgh 1722'.

The English Chapel referred to in the inscription was attended by the English government officials who came to Edinburgh after the Union of the Parliaments in 1707.
