Byzatine Style Diskos & Asterisk

This diskos and asterisk are inspired by the very large and ornate examples that survive from 6th-century Byzantium. The diskos is twelve inches in diameter. It is hand-engraved with a Byzantine cross and Greek letters. The inscription represents the phrase “Thine own of Thine own, we offer unto Thee.” The asterisk follows the domed shape of early examples and bears a carnelian gemstone at the apex.


The diskos and asterisk are handmade from copper and brass by a master silversmith. Both are thickly electroplated with silver.


Price: $2400
