Biretta Worn by the Provost of the Augustinian Convent, Beyharting

This wonderful biretta (made of velvet) and a lot of applications (floral motives, trees, a rose made of golden threads and boullion on the top) was worn during the 18th century by the provost of the Augustinian Convent of Beyharting.
Now this precious biretta is kept in the Basilica Tuntenhausen, Germany.
