A panel of cut voided velvet of 'ferronnerie' design
Italian, circa 1450
£3,200

Made up of joined pieces which would originally have formed sections of a liturgical vestment. Now backed, and bordered with gold braid.
This all-over stepped repeating design of a five-lobed shape enclosing a symmetrically placed stylized plant reminiscent of a pomegranate is, due to the resemblance of the linear pattern to wrought iron work, usually termed 'ferronerie'.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, has a velvet cope with a very similar treatment of this design (Accession Number: 1975.1.1843), and also a panel (Accession Number: 46.109.8). A chasuble in the Musées Royaux d'Art et d'Histoire, Brussels (Inventory number Tx.0378) is of comparable design and colour.
