Anther side-border or edge (edging?) taken from “Hours of the Virgin” (Harl. 2,936). This one has blue vine leaves on a dark brown background.

The book is attributed to the Master of Martainville and includes 24 miniatures with foliate borders (such as this one) in colours and gold. The British library has some images too:
