Dropped capitals, page decorations that are Art Nouveau in time but look rather more Medieval. Taken from Friedrich Hottenroth’s 1896 tome “Le costume, les armes, les bijoux, la céramique, les ustensiles, outils, objets mobiliers, etc. : chez les peuples anciens et modernes” which was published in Paris in 1896 by A. Guérinet.
