This handpainted/inked vellum page overall is 5-1/2"h x 4" exposed portion in triple matting and molded mottled goldtone frame with beaded inner edge, 14-7/8"h x 11-3/8"w.

Top left margin features gold ornamentation in fleur-de-lys, dots, and fern-like foliage. The sheet is reportedly 15th century Dutch. This warrants confirmation. Page is free from stains and tears.
