      I put portrtait of Elzabeth by Vroom and some other pics at


      I have some other pictures from books that I need to scan in and add
      to the page.

      While I'll agree that shoulder quivers do not seem to have been as
      widely used as other quivers in most European cultures in period, I
      think it is clear that those cultures knew about back quivers. I
      dont think it is unreasonable to assume that some of them would have
      at least tried back quivers.
