We found this Paternoster in a diptych by Rogier van der Weyden. Philippe de Croy, a young nobleman in the court (headquatered at Brussels) of the Duke of Burgundy, Philip III, is depicted adoring a vision of The Virgin and Child. He holds a linear Paternoster, composed of silver and gold beads, a tassel at one end and a Crucifix on the other. It was painted in about 1460, when Philippe was 25 years old. $75
