  • Kirk Taskila

    From The Treasury of Basel Cathedral (MMA). These fabric-covered boxes must have been fairly common in churches, altho few survive (to my knowledge). From Med. Arts & Crafts blog. Note the wooden balls embroidered w/sequins & pearls. The painting inside the lid is tempera on silk. Note also the multicolored fringe on the edge of the lid and the cord that restricts the opening of the box. The box sides are very thin, but the inside support is wood according to the accompanying text.

Medieval Arts & Crafts: Pattern #21. The inspiration for this pattern is the tiled roof of the Hôtel-Dieu in Beaune, France (part of Burgundy). The building was built as a charitable almshouse in 1443 by Nicholas Rolin, chancellor to Duke Philip the Good of Burgundy. The current tiles were recreated from 1902-7 in the original style.
