Text from the curators:

On the occasion of Brukenthal National Museum’s Bicentennial, are presented 3 cultural goods, of great value for the history of Sibiu, that have been placed in the patrimony of the National History Museum of Romania in Bucharest since 1974.
They are the sealing ring of baron Samuel von Brukenthal (gold with enamel and niello, jasper gem, dating back to the second half of the 18th c.), the hat ornament found in Albert Huet's grave (gold with emails, garnets and pearls, dated 1577-1607), remounted in the late 19th c. on a velvet belt and the Altemberger Codex.
Altemberger Codex, the main attraction of the exhibition, is a collection of legal texts (municipal and mining law), drafted in German space in the 14th-15th c. (even late 13th c., according to some opinions), whose last two pages (including the mayor's oath) were painted and written in Sibiu in 1481, by the Mayor Thomas Altemberger's office for the use of the city magistrate. The volume, written in Gothic letters on parchment, is richly ornamented with miniatures: frames with phytomorphic decorative elements and religious scenes (some occupying the entire page), initial letters and frames with genre scenes made with gold leaf and natural colors
