ANNE WANNER'S Textiles in History   /  book cover

Book cover
measurement: 16 x 11 cm, cross stitching in both directions. 10 to 11 stitches per cm. Silk and metall embroidery (gilt silver stripes) on undyed linen (?).
The cover belongs to a psalter from Tournai around 1270-80, but had different owners.

Has anybody come along a similar object. The author thinks about a dating in the 16th century, but it could also be end of 19th century.
