A Pair Of Medieval Brass Page Turners.reference no SN11208
A very good quality pair of medieval period brass page turners.
These items which date to circa the 15th century AD, are rare survivors from the time when they were used to turn the pages of illuminated hand written manuscripts.
They are still quite springy and with some dark deposits to the metal, as they were found in excavations on the river thames foreshore back in the early 1970s.
Ex. Private collection 1970s.
As with all of my antiquities and coins this item comes complete with a display box together with a certificate of authenticity.
