TRANSLATE Arabic Chinese French German Greek Indonesian Italian Hindi Japanese Korean Swedish Portuguese Russian Spanish The Lady in Medieval England ... more1000-1500 by Peter Coss.

We might also have different editions as well(some paperback, some hardcover, oftentimes international editions) If you don’t see what you want, please contact us and ask. We’re happy to send you a summary of the differing conditions and prices we may have for the same title. DESCRIPTION: Hardback with Dust Jacket: 214 pages. Publisher: Wrens Park Publishing; 1999) Although there have been many books written about medieval women. Few have focused specifically on the lady. In a book designed as a companion to the author's previous book. The Knight in Medieval England. Professor Coss attempts to remedy this with a work which concentrates on the role of the lady within medieval society, how she was perceived both by herself and by her male counterparts, how she related to and participated within the seemingly prevailing male culture of gentility, how the lives of lords and ladies inter-related, and how they behaved towards one another. The author begins by introducing the issues to be discussed through the example of the Pastons of the fifteenth century. The origins of the English lady are then considered and her position. Status and image during the eleventh and twelfth centuries examined, highlighting both changes and continuities. The book then develops this theme by looking at the widening gentility in England during the succeeding centuries, especially as expressed through a variety of visual media. Employing a variety of sources. Including double monumental effigies, brasses, and surviving letters, Professor Coss opens to popular scrutiny the affective relations between lord and lady, before turning to antagonistic relationships.

TRANSLATE Arabic Chinese French German Greek Indonesian Italian Hindi Japanese Korean Swedish Portuguese Russian Spanish Genuine Handcrafted“South Dakota ... moreBlack Hills” Solid Gold Ring Featuring Red and Green Colored Grape Leaves(and Grapes) Not cheap gold electroplate! This is a high-quality. Handcrafted ring. The ring itself is 10kt solid gold, the handcrafted grapes and leaves are 12kt solid gold. Size 8. NOTE: We can send the ring out for resizing(incurs nominal extra cost) DESCRIPTION: Metalworking techniques reached northern Europe by about 2000 B.C. And the earliest jewelry found there dates from between 1800 and 1400 B.C. These artifacts include lunulae(spectacular, crescent-shaped neck ornaments of beaten gold) most of which were found in graves in Ireland, where gold was once plentiful. There is evidence that the Celtic and early British people were trading with the Eastern Mediterranean races by this time, exchanging gold for faience(glass) beads. By 1200 B.C. jewelry making was flourishing in Central and Western Europe. The fibula-brooch(forerunner of the“modern” safety pin) seems to have been invented at about this time. Twisted gold torcs, modeled on Scandinavian bronze prototypes, were made in the British Isles and northern France from the fifth to the first century B.C. These massive circlets for the necks and arms were the characteristic ornaments of the chiefs of the Celtic race, and were symbols of wealth, power and courage across Celtic Europe. Celtic craftsmen also used enamel and inlay to decorate jewelry. In celebration of that heritage here is a gorgeous. High quality 10/12kt solid gold ring. Please do not confuse this with cheap gold electroplate. This is a high-quality, hand-made ring, crafted right here in the USA, and constructed to last a lifetime. The ring itself is constructed of 10kt solid gold, while the handmade red and green colored leaves and grapes are constructed of solid 12kt gold. This style of handcrafted multi-colored gold jewelry originated in the Black Hills

NOTE: We can send the ring out for resizing(incurs nominal extra cost) DESCRIPTION: The art of fashioning gold jewelry reached the Mediterranean island of Crete(home of the ancient Minoans) about 2400 B.C. Diadems. Hair ornaments, beads, bracelets, and complex chains have been found in Minoan tombs. Near Eastern techniques of filigree and granulation were introduced to Crete about 2000 B.C. and evidence also indicates that Egyptian styles influenced Minoan jewelry. Minoan culture and its jewelry styles spread to the mainland of Greece, then dominated by the city-state of Mycenea, about 1550 B.C. The graves of nobles at the ancient Citadel of Mycenae discovered by Heinrich Schliemann in 1876 likewise yielded a great variety of gold figurines, masks, cups, diadems, and jewelry, plus hundreds of decorated beads and buttons. These elegant works of art were created by skilled craftsmen more than 3,500 years ago. In celebration of that heritage here is a gorgeous. High quality 10/12kt solid gold ring. Please do not confuse this with cheap gold electroplate. This is a high-quality, hand-made ring, crafted right here in the USA, and constructed to last a lifetime.

This style of handcrafted multi-colored gold jewelry originated in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The leaf, rose(and frequently grape) designs incorporated into this style of gold jewelry was inspired by wild grape vines and wild roses that flourish in the region. Set into the center of

The tomb of the Sumerian Queen Puabi, from the city of Ur in about the 26th century B.C. was one of the richest tombs ever uncovered by archaeologists. Queen Puabi was buried with five soldiers and thirteen"ladies in waiting" who had apparently poisoned themselves(or been poisoned) to serve their mistress in the next world. From Ancient Egypt circa 5,000 B.C. through the ancient Sumerians and Minoans(of Crete) of 2,500 B.C. and the ancient Myceneans, Phoenicians, and Celts of 1,200 B.C. gold has always been mankind’s most favored ornamental metal used in the manufacture of jewelry!

Earrings: From Antiquity to the Present by Daniela Mascetti and Amanda Triossi. DESCRIPTION: Hardback with Dust Jacket: 224 pages. Publisher: Thames and ... moreHudson; 1990) ISBN: 0500014930. There is an inexplicable magic about earrings. Unmatched by any other kind of jewelry. Uniquely, they move with a life of their own, voluptuous yet pure, cold yet provocative. Earrings have been worn since prehistoric times; ancient civilizations offered earrings to their goddesses, and today they remain the most demanding and rewarding exercises of the jeweler's art. Daniela Mascetti and Amanda Triossi, both experts from Sotheby's, are themselves under the spell of earrings, and their erudition does not disguise that this book is as much a romance as a fine piece of art-historical research. The authors relate how the fashion of wearing precious earrings spread from ancient Egypt to the Classical Greek and Roman worlds to Byzantium. Techniques in the cutting of gemstones and diamonds. Perfected in the eighteenth century, allowed earring design to evolve towards its most stylish and glamorous. Extraordinary and imaginative revivals of Classical and Roman motifs are here. The opulence of exquisitely crafted creations of gold and precious stones, the bold lines of Art Deco, and a rich proliferation of modern designs, from the most traditional to the most innovative, created by leading European and American designers. The book covers every period and style up to the present. The great names among designers and international jewelry houses; Cartier. Boucheron, Mellerio, Van Cleef& Arpels, Verdura, Andrew Grima, Merina B. David Webb, Harry Winston, Graff and Bulgari, are all represented in dazzling displays of precious and semi-precious earrings. Illustrations range from Rococo flowers and long, heavy girondoles thick with diamonds and emeralds to chaste Neoclassical disks and the delicate nodding sprays of the late nineteenth century. A wide-ranging study that will be a rich source of inspiration and delight for collectors,
