Our twelfth calendar post is a cocktail of things. It’s a relief velvet, a selvage of the velvet, a woven band and a embroidery in gold thread. The object is a cope from Vallentuna, Sweden
The majority of the materials are in silk. The embroidery seems be made on linen or hemp fabric.
The cope dates 1450- 1500 AD.
Now in collections of Historiska museet, Sweden
