Product Description


This French Hood circa 1525-1536 is based on the famous portrait of Queen Anne Boleyn - Henry VIII's ill-fated second wife.

It has been made using proper millenary techniques. The Base is covered with lush velvet.  Appropriate weight millenary wire has been added to the top and bottom. Imported Czech Glass Pearls have been sewn along the top and bottom billiments. Gold box lace has been sewn along the bottom to frame the face.

Although I try to make my items as historically accurate as possible, I do believe that there are some things that make our lives easier! Most hoods were attached with ties under the chin, but I find that very uncomfortable so I make my Hoods to tie in the back at the hairline. Secondly,usually Black Velvet was used for the veil. I use black silk elegance because it is lighter weight and not as hot!
