“The Assumption of the Virgin”. Rose-colored ground, on which is an oval medallion, containing the figure of the Virgin, above a Cherubim and IHS woven with yellow silk. Of the same type as 93.626 and 85.358. The colors in this piece are so fresh that it seems as if it must be a late reproduction of an old design.
