Advent calendar 7 December 2017

Our seventh calendar post is a purse made out of a reused embroidery, with a backside of leather, from an unknown Swedish church.

Here we can see Maria Magdalena. The embroidery is made out of silk and metal thread.

The dating is late 15th or early 16th century.

Now in collections of Historiska museet, Sweden
