Original manuscript - 15th century - vellum - 10 × 7.5 cm.
Condition: although more than 550 years old, the leaf is still in good condition. Elements that determine the value: its rarity, quality, age and attractiveness. This is a masterpiece in any serious collection. Probably mice have been nibbling at the leaves, so the parchment has disappeared in the margins.
This 15th-century manuscript page is from a Latin book of hours that was written in France. One line begins with a gilt-heightened initial with red, blue and white penwork.
This is a manuscript on vellum (thin parchment - animal skin) with some beautiful initials decorated with penwork. This is an original unique piece from the 15th century.
