Description

A group of medieval enamels in the Museums collection were once part of the massive reliquary shrines that lavishly decorated the interiors of Colognes churches; some of these reliquary fragments resemble small-scale door arches, columns, and capitals. Adorned with intricate champlev enamel, a colonnette, or miniature column, from this group was made in Cologne about 11751200. This richly decorated colonnette is the basis for our handsome pen design.
