A silver chalice was designed as a footed vessel for holding liquid, and was typically used during religious ceremonies, unlike a silver goblet, which was meant to be used on a daily basis. The oldest known piece of English sterling silver which carries a date letter is thought to be the chalice and paten from the church of St. Mary the Virgin in Somerset, which is currently housed in the Victoria & Albert Museum.
