Object Notes Foliate border decoration with stylised tri-lobed flowers, berries and gold dots; red guide-lines or staves are visible. This is a fragment of a decorative border (in purple, green and gold) which would originally have surrounded a body of text, a miniature or a body of musical notation and text. The recto (and only side of this fragment visible) shows that this side of the parchment was the 'hair' side.
