Christ with the Virgin and St John.
Probably from a casket, niello on engraved silver
Paris circa 1320-1340
Size : 7.2 cm high, 4 cm wide – 2¾ ins high, 1½ ins wide
In the first half of the 14th century Paris was a famous centre for devotional work in ivory and translucent enamel and there developed a particular Parisian style amongst the artists and workshops of the time. The graceful, gothic simplicity of the figures depicted on this plaque can be linked with the iconography and style of the Parisian ivories of the period.
