A golden jewel enameled en ronde-bosse in a Milanese document from the early 15th Century ROBERTA DELMORO The article recopies and analyzes – with particular focus on their historical and art-historical importance – the contents of a previously unpublished document found among the folders of Milanese notary Giovannino Balbi in Milan’s State Archive. The instrumentum, an act of turnover produced in Milan and dated July 6th 1405, describes – with compositional and iconographic detail – a votive dangling plaque, then preserved by Giovanni I Borromeo, entirely made of gold and enameled in relief in white and red, using the en ronde-bosse technique. The pendant, now presumably lost, represented the Virgin with Child between the Saints John the Baptist and Dionysius Confessor, the Holy Spirit Dove and, at the top, the Holy Father in Heaven with Angels. The presence of the Milanese Martyr Saint separates the jewel, probably made in Paris, from the presently known accounts of similar sumptuary objects found in Lombardy. Its commission is just an episode of the wide range of trades between Lombardy and France, a result of the “international” policy adopted by Giangaleazzo Visconti at the end of the Middle Ages.
