Another cotehardie with interesting embellishment. It also seems to be lined with ermine. Probably 14th century, appears in The Belles Heures, which first appears in an inventory note of the Duke de Berry's possessions in 1408-1409.

There are very few existent fragments of medieval embroidery remaining. A beautiful sample of can be seen below at left, on an embroidered band. The embroidery was sewn onto a separate strip of fabric which was then stitched to the garment. Dated at the 13th century, it is a band of fantastic animals in roundels embroidered with gold thread on silk twill. Photo ©Timothy Mitchell, Victoria Albert Museum of London.
