Pair of liturgical cuffs belonging to the "Green Satin Half-Embroidered Vestment made in Milan".
The green was used in the so-called Common Time, the longest period of the liturgical year: 33 - 34 weeks distributed between the feast of the Baptism of Jesus and the beginning of Lent and between the Monday after of Pentecost and the beginning of Advent.
The embroidery is made with golden thread instead of real gold thread, as the piece was destined to be used in a Franciscan Convent.
