Manuscript; Antiphonary leaf - 1540

Description
Manuscript; Antiphonary leaf - 1540
Manuscripts, Religion - Quantity: 1 - other extra - see description - Single sheet

This special parchment is a handwritten musical text in Latin. The text comes from a Christian song book.
The parchment dates from the first half of the 16th century. A vignette was painted in three colours with ink. The sheet is labelled on both sides.
A so-called elephant folio describes an oversized sheet. This sheet includes notes.

The parchment is in an age-appropriate, good condition. The back is heavier browned than the front. This is caused by the outer and inner sides of the pig skin. The lower left corner is slightly tanned and has a scar-like small defect. The left edge is cropped.
It is suitable as nice wall decoration.
