Advent calendar 17 December 2017 

 

Our seventeenth calendar post is an embroidery. From Skå church, Sweden. It’s an Opus Anglicanum work, from England.

Here we can see a close up on the embroidery. Silk and gold on linen. The silk is sewn in split stitch. The embroidery is of the highest class.

The item dates to 1250- 1350 AD. Most likely 1330-1350.

Now in collections of Historiska museet, Sweden
