Tudor French Hood 3/4 View

This French hood was styled to look like one worn by Queen Catherine Howard in 1542 in a drawing by Herbert Norris (fig. 406) from his book "Tudor Costume and Fashion". It was made up in fabric covered plastic canvas. The beads and pearls were first strung on wire and then whip stitched on to the edges with metallic thread.
