Detailed description

Depuis le Moyen Âge, il est attesté que lors de la messe de mariage, les époux ont coutume d'offrir un treizain. Il s'agit d'un ensemble de treize deniers - représentant Jésus-Christ et les douze apôtres -, dont le treizième denier est généralement récupéré par le prêtre. Le treizain est béni et symbolise ainsi l'entrée dans une communauté de biens des mariés. A partir du XVIe siècle, les époux utilisent pour le treizain deux formes d'objets monétaires. L'usage courant est le réemploi de monnaies existantes - le plus souvent des deniers tournois -, parfois dorées ou argentées. On retrouve par ailleurs des treizains sous forme de deniers bractéactes, crées spécifiquement pour l'occasion. Il s'agit de fins jetons en argent ou en vermeil gravés de légendes et symboles évoquant le plus souvent la Foi et l'Amour, telles que sanctifiées par le mariage chrétien. Il arrive que ces deniers soient alors offerts et conservés dans de petites boîtes, parfois ornementées, appelées boîtes à treizain. Ces objets fragiles se retrouvent le plus souvent dépareillés, car la boîte est les deniers sont régulièrement dispersés voire perdus au fil des générations. Les rares exemplaires qui nous sont parvenus sont ainsi de précieux témoignages d'une Histoire du mariage dans l'Occident chrétien, mais également d'une histoire intime d'un couple ayant échangé leurs vœux de fidélité devant l'autel.
