Last week, I was in Brussels where I visited the Jubelparkmuseum/Musee du Cinquantenaire

They have a lovely piece of 14th century whitework on display:

You can find these images and more in the Kikirpa database, searching for object nr 20016337


While I was browsing this database, I also found this supercute 14th century mermaid pouch. It's in the same museum, but not on display (too bad!!) (clichenr A50420):
