Tunicella, before 1246, Kunsthistorisches Museum
This was made in Palermo (which means I could be related to whoever wore it, but probably not), but its date of creation is unknown. All we know is that it was mentioned in documents twice: once in 1350 where it was called “a blue gown”, and once in 1246 where it was called a “gown of samite”. Surprisingly, I can’t find any indication that it has ever been restored or added to.
