Essener Agraffen

Last week I was in Essen for a congress and I found some time to visit the Domschatz

The museum has a display with these gorgeous mantle brooches from Paris ca 1400-1410, called "agraffen". I guess they're about 4-5 cm each. I have never seen anything like this before and I think they're absolutely beautiful. I would love to have the one with the daisies, I'm sure it would look good on a crispy white blouse or a jeans jacket :-)

Take a look at them here.
