54 x 39 cm. In possible Otto Ege mat, cream-colored, lacking fine red ruling lines (possibly because of leaf size?). Handwritten note in pencil (Ege's hand) on recto tail is unreadable in part: "1485 A. D. Flanders - Diocese of Ma-t------, Antiphonal" (Maestricht?). Lower left corner of mat bears the mark "63/28". Two other pieces bear a similar mark of 63 over a changing number.
