Description

From Breviary for the Use of Verdun, Winter Volume, made for Renaud de Bar between 1302 and 1303 in France. This pin depicts one half of a drollery, a popular style of marginalia. The other half is its jousting opponent – a dog riding a hare. Role-reversals (such as animals acting as humans) were a typical medieval trope used for humour, often seen in manuscript illuminations and marginalia.

A hard enamel pin with a design based on the marginalia of MS Yates Thompson 8 f. 294. It measures 40mm at its widest point and has a black nickel finish. Each pin comes on a backing card and with two black rubber clutches for added security and to avoid spinning. Made in the UK.

Orders of the full set of Marginalia Paraphernalia pins will come with a free A6 sheet of stickers.

5% of all Marginalia Paraphernalia sales go to support Arts Emergency (registered charity no. 1152377).

    This looks splendid on my coat! Fantastic pin. I ordered its counterpart afterwards, and I’m looking forward to having one on each lapel!

    Awesome pin. Design and execution are on point and it seems sturdy. I was planning on buying just one as a gift for my medieval art history professor, but I ended up buying one for myself and two of my colleagues as well. They’re going to love them. This is going to be my go to website for gifts anytime I need a present for someone in my department.
