Orphrey Panels from a Chasuble


Not on view

The delicate facial features and soft, ornamental drapery outlining the body of Christ and the Virgin typify the style of the court school of Prague in the early fifteenth century, as does the embellishment of the background with golden disks. The embroidery is part of an orphrey that would have decorated a priestly robe.
