Description

(Fig. 4) The people in this illustration, of a significantly higher class than Alisoun, have sleeves to match this class difference. Like Alisoun, their sleeves have a luxurious fur trim, but theirs are much longer, more expensive, and therefore more stylish. Note the colors of the fur; gray was a more valuable fur color than the more common brown of Alisoun's dress, and the ermine fur (white with black specks) was the most valuable of all. Grande Bible historiale, ca. 1395-1401. Paris: Bibliothèque nationale de France, BnF MS fr. 159 (fol. 289v)
