Summary

Inventories of the assets of Vincenzo de' Medici written in 1641, probably written by his mother. Vincenzo left Florence to move to Naples and asked his mother to make an inventory of his assets before having them sent to his new residence. The items that appear in the inventory include a large number of clothes and accessories (including lace collars, linens, towels and handkerchiefs, all custom-made and decorated) described in great detail; household accessories (including other kinds of less precious linens, cleaning tools and stove and kitchen accessories); jewelry (including pearl necklaces, a rosary with large prayer beads, chains of various materials, a ruby ring, other less valuable pieces of jewelry such as rings, crystals, coral accessories and children's jewelry); and silverware (including cups, assorted sets of cutlery, a small silver filigree box, buckets and various pieces of cookware). The last four leaves, written in a different hand and on a different kind of paper, contain a very similar inventory of the aforementioned objects that were, however, sold by Vincenzo once he reached Naples. 11 leaves between f. 5 and f. 6 have been cut from the manuscript.
