The chalice veil (Burrell 29/9) war purchased by Burrell in 1932 and may be from the Sotheby sale of 11 December 1931. It is of linen with silk and metal thread in satin stem stitches and couching, 43 x 45cm. The inscription reads "Elisabetha Dei Gratia Anglia Francie et Hibernie Regina Fidei Defensatrix Dieu et mon Droit." Between the lines are globes and ostrich feathers. In the centre are the Royal Arms with three leopards and three fleurs-de-lys. It seems very likely that this was used in a royal chapel.
