1320-1340 England (embroidery), Italy (velvet). Apparels of an Alb. Silk velvet, embroidered with silver-gilt, silver and silk thread. Apparels are rectangular decorative panels that were placed at the hems, necks and on the sleeves of two types of ecclesiastical vestment: the alb and the dalmatic. These show scenes from the life of the Virgin and her parents, set under Gothic arches.
Fig. 148. Basin known as the Baptistere of Saint Louis. Materials: Brass inlaid with gold & silver. Year/Era: 1300. Location: Mamluk Egypt or Syria. Use: Catching waste water. Significance: Having no inscription bands and decoration comprised of extraordinary detail & superbly executed figural compositions, it is likely that the images substitute for inscriptions; the Baptistere represents the final use of this tradition of decoration in Islamic lands.
