Leaf from an Antiphonary: Initial H with the Nativity (recto) and Text (verso), c

Leaf from an Antiphonary: Initial H with the Nativity (recto) and Text (verso), c. 1480. The border ornament and initial design of this leaf have stylistic affinities with South German illumination of the late 1400s and particularly with the Augsburg workshops. It survives along with two known sister leaves with textual and illustrative references to Saint Clare. This saint was widely venerated during the Middle Ages and is closely associated with Saint Francis who installed her with a group of nuns in a community at Assisi. Francis prescribed an austere way of life for the nuns who afterward became known as the Poor Clares. Saint Clare died in 1253 and was canonized in 1255. The prominent references to Clare in the parent codex to which this leaf belongs implies that it was made for a religious community of that order, perhaps in Augsburg or elsewhere in South Germany. The text reads: Hodie nobis celorum rex (On this day the king of heaven). This is the first matins response for Christmas Day.

Double cup, c1590, (1881). Creator: John Watkins

Double cup, c1590, (1881). Etching of one half of double standing cup, made in Germany by Hans Petzold of Nuremberg, (bowl and stem) and Christoph Lencker of Augsburg, (foot). Double cups were composed of two identical halves and made two goblets when separated. They were traditionally given as wedding presents and used as 'welcome' cups for shared drinking by guilds and other institutions. This one is silver-gilt, engraved and chased. From "The South Kensington Museum", a book of engraved illustrations, with descriptions, of the works of art in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London (formerly known as the South Kensington Museum). [Sampson Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington, London, 1881]
