Mandora or chitarino, ca. 1420 Northern Italy (Milan?) Boxwood and rosewood. There are three surviving examples of this mysterious type of instrument from the early fifteenth century, of which the one exhibited here is the most elegant.

The carved imagery relates to courtly romance and probably alludes to the rewards of fidelity in love.
