Four Enamel Plaques


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 307

An artist of great skill produced these precious enamels for a wealthy patron. They may originally have been set like jewels in an altar or a reliquary or have been sewn to textiles such as altar cloths, bishops' mitres, girdles, or gloves.
