Object Description

This all-over stepped repeating design of a five-lobed shape enclosing a symmetrically placed stylized plant reminiscent of a pomegranate is, due to the resemblance of the linear pattern to wrought iron work, usually termed ‘ferronerie’.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, has a velvet cope with a very similar treatment of this design (Accession Number: 1975.1.1843), and also a panel (Accession Number: 46.109.8). A chasuble in the Musées Royaux d’Art et d’Histoire, Brussels (Inventory number Tx.0378) is of comparable design and colour.

Object Condition

Made up of joined pieces which would originally have formed sections of a liturgical vestment. Now backed, and bordered with gold braid.
