Medieval floor tile from Tintern Abbey. yes this is a real old piece of tile. i think you artsy ones out there could copy this exactly, or make up your own, stencil might help. but its mostly about the patina. get that down and your set.
Fleur de Lys-shaped Book of Hours, 18 x 8 cm. Likely created in Paris circa 1553. Contains eleven lobe-shaped miniatures. Sold by Christie's on June 6, 2006 for $28,000. Only one other manuscript of this format from the same period has been recorded (in Leon Gruel's "Manuel historique et bibliographique de L'amateur de reliures," 1905, II, pp.9-11, pl.G), and that particular work was made for Diane de Poitiers and Henry II.
