Clerical Vestment
red brocade with Coral embroidery, c. 1400
Chicago Museum of Art

I apologize for the crappy quality of this shot. We awere not allowed to take photos, so I had to hit on a mexcian museum guard to distract him form the side room while Broom took this photo, all while we watched for passersby. What fun. But this was a splendid piece. teh coral beads in size were about what we would call a size"08", maybe as large as a "06" or "E" bead. fairly large.
