More research at Stanford Library
Here are the first of some of the wonderful things I scanned at the Stanford Art and Architecture library today. I chose the picture of this aquamanile because of the depiction of the late 14th century clothing, which I want to make ( I love tippets!). In another photo of the back of this piece it is possible to view her hairstyle which appears to be a fishtail braid.
This aquamanile depicts Phyllis and Aristotle and was made in the South Lowlands in the late 14th century.
I would really love to learn metalworking, especially blacksmithing and casting, also enamelwork.
