The elegance of the elongated silhouettes of the Virgin & Saint John, the beautiful quality of the engraving, the simplicity of the circular rosettes & their arrangement close to symmetry place this binding plate quite early in the production of Limoges champlevés enamels, at the end of the 12th to the early 13th century.
