Pilgrim's badge

Spanish, probably Toledo

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 535

Although such framelike insignia were made in gold for the wealthier members of Marian confraternities, this one, of brass like the pair alongside it, must have belonged to a less properous adherent. Bearing the cipher of the Virgin on its front, behind the glass it still contains a fragementary engraving of the three Marys at the tomb.

Pilgrim's badge, Champlevé enamel on brass, partially gilded, Spanish, probably Toledo
