Altar Cloths

From the Collection of Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village 89 Merri Street Warrnambool Victoria

A frontal, or Antependium, is the same size as the front of the altar. Some churches opt for a plain frontal as this one is, has an embossed cross in the centre and blue in colour (Advent), it is W 52cm x L139cm. One characteristic is shared by all frontals: they are coloured green, red, purple, blue, black, white, gold or of unbleached muslin, and are changed according to the colour of the Church year.
W 52cm x L139cm.
