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 hare riding a hybrid snail. 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 a full set of Marginalia Paraphernalia pins (either folio 1 or folio 2) will come with a free A6 sheet of stickers.

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

    I love this pin! I have it on my coat lapel, with the jousting bunny on the opposite lapel. I get so many nice comments about it!
