medieval coat hangers

Postby Strickland » Tue Apr 08, 2014 6:52 pm

Been stumbling around in the forum looking for a pic I swear I saw on here of a simple coat or clothes hanger, basically a wooden bar with some rope from the middle and a hook of some description atop. It was from a manuscript/painting as I remember. Its something i'd like a go at considering i have a few suitable bits in the shed to mess with, but of course some prividence would be nice to back it up with!!
with that in mind, does anyone remember the pic perchance or have similar to show?? Ive tried Larsdatter but it plagues me with google searches!
Thanks peeps!!

Neil

there are a couple in various Italian street scenes and possibly in the odd french/burgundian source. Bent stick with a hole in the middle for a hook or knotted string, perfectly acceptable. I'll try and look them out but I think the decameron might be worth a look...
