Advent calendar 23 December 2017

Our twenty-third calendar post is a in silk and gold brocade.  Originally it was a chasuble.  From Gammalkils church, Sweden.

Here we can see a close up on the bird and the leopard (?) on the fabric. The fabric was red before it faded.

This piece is dated to late 14th century.

Now in collections of Historiska museet, Sweden
