fol. 77v - bas-de-page detail of a woman with a tabor.
Her hair is braided and loosely fastened on top of her head, forming almost pouches, when viewed from the front. Both the kirtle and the overkirtle are blue and the overkirtle is upturned at the hem - fastening the impractical length of the skirt and showing of the vair lining at the same time. The sleeves are cut to form tippets.

Uniforme d’académicien d’André Liesse (1854-1944)
@credits

The official uniform of a member of the Académie Française is known as l’habit vert, or the green habit. The habit vert, worn at the Académie’s formal ceremonies, was first adopted during Napoleon Bonaparte’s reorganisation of the Institut de France. It consists of a long black coat and black-feathered cocked hat (officially called a bicorne), both richly embroidfered with golden-green leafy motifs, together with black trousers or skirt. Further, members receive a ceremonial sword (l’épée); however, clergymen do not receive swords.

Pourpoint de Charles de Blois / Charles de Blois’ doublet

@credits

It is one of the rare civilian costume that survived from the end of the Middle Ages, probably thanks to its “relics” status. According to the tradition the doublet was honored in the Église des Carmes in Angers where it remained until the Revolution, and belonged to Charles de Blois, who claimed the duchy of Brittany and died at the battle of Auray in 1364 - he was considered as a Saint. But there’s no evidence to prove it.

Smallsword with scabbard, hallmarked for 1773–74Master GG (active Paris, ca. 1744)France (Paris)Gold, steel, wood, fish skin 
@credits

Smallswords, like snuffboxes, were an essential element of male costume in the eighteenth century, and their hilts were appreciated as masculine jewelry. This weapon is a particularly fine Parisian example that combines elements of the older Rococo and the more modern Neoclassical ornamental vocabularies. The hilt and scabbard mounts of this example are cast entirely of yellow and green gold and are modeled with figures of the classical deities Mars, Minerva, Jupiter, and Hercules and with personifications of Justice and Prudence. This smallsword represents the final and most refined stage in the development of civilian swords, shortly before they ceased to be worn in Western Europe as a regular part of a gentleman’s wardrobe.
