Highly burnished & embellished  gold initial.

It seems most likely that this leaf derives from a prayerbook rather than a Book of Hours.   It contains an entire prayer to Saints Mary and Barbara,  (often combined in Northern Europe prayerbooks), in Dutch.

Recto: 22 lines of text written in Dutch in an assured gothic bookhand on vellum. Ruled in red and rubrics in red.  One beautifully executed four-line initial ‘O’ in raised and burnished gold on blue and brick grounds with red and white penwor k embellishments.

Verso:   As Recto, text only.

Source:  Netherlands.

Date:   c.1475.

Condition: The leaf is in excellent condition with clean vellum and high quality illuminations.  Very slight rubbing to the gold. It is unconditionally guaranteed genuine.

Size: Leaf: c.165x115 mm.  Please note that shipping is invoiced separately.

Item Number: MBH161
