Hello everyone... Some finished photos of a commission I am very proud of.
A 15th century style Medieval Illuminating desk. An illuminated manuscript is a manuscripts decorated with gold or silver, but can also refer to any decorated or illustrated manuscript.
They have been dated back to AD 400 to 600. Mostly religious.
The painting (on the right) depicts the bridge and Church of Our Lady, in Bruges, Belgium. That is where the tomb of Mary of Burgundy is found. The Mary of Burgundy theme also continues in the open book shown on the top of the desk. These were some personal touches that were important to my collector. I enjoy the details when completing projects.
Filled real aged leather trunk.
