The smaller crozier is taken from Willemin's 'Monuments Francais Inedits' (1839), plate 107, which is a study of a crozier from the early 13th century. The larger study is possibly taken from an illustration of a 12th century encrusted enamel crozier in Henry Shaw's 'The Decorative Arts, Ecclesiastical and Civil, of the Middle Ages', plate 4, but reversed here by Burne-Jones.
