Re: [MedievalSawdust] Digest Number 813
- I've never seen any royal crowns made of wood, or anything else
but metal, but when you said that I suddenly remembered a
woodworking show I attended where a guy was selling wooden hats.
They were fedoras and cowboy type hats, made out of gorgeous
hard woods and they were beautifully sculpted. the wood was very
thin, nowhere more than 1/8th inch, much less for the most part.
I could imagine a set of crowns done in a similar style, not
rigid and Gothic but something organic and flowing. (that is
just my opinion)
Baronial and Viscount cornets are often made of alternate
materials and might be a good place to start.
Here are some sites with similar hats.
Good Luck, I would like to see what you come up with.
