The November page in the Très Riches Heures is attributed entirely to Jean Colombe and dates from the completion of the manuscript in the later 1480s. Unlike the other pages by the Limbourg brothers seventy or so years earlier it does not show a specific place, but rather a scene of rustic life. What is depicted is the fattening of pigs on acorns and beech mast - the right of pannage. There is presumably the suggestion of plenty of pork and pork products to eat at the approaching Christmas season.
