|The Walsingham Fleur-de-Lis is patterned on several extant examples.
The knobbed decoration is characteristic of
pilgrim signs from Walsingham, where England's foremost shrine to the Virgin stood.
It imitates in pewter the pearl "halos" which
adorn many precious metal brooches from the second quarter of the 15th century.
