Some choice objects -
|Griffin ewer made about 1120|
|Aquamaniles - the one in front made in Hildesheim 1215-1230|
|Columns from southern Italy, 1150-1200|
Ivory and enamel made up the objects of my choice. Ivory objects are usually quite small; enamel objects can be larger. Both take great skill, of course. And it's amazing that the ivory box "representing a relatively obscure story" is nearly 1000 years old; the Limoges plaque showing the resurrection of the dead dates to about 1250.
