Border with Arching Leaf Fronds


On view at The Met Cloisters in Gallery 08

Several unusual details in this border fragment, such as its extreme narrowness and the turn of the leaf tip, are found in glass from Soissons Cathedral. The strict lateral symmetry is characteristic of 13th-century border design.
