Anne Denmark by Nicholas Hilliard

This Hilliard miniature of Anne of Denmark shows her ruff is made of gorgeous lace.

Tabbed sleeves again replace rolled sleeves in this dress. There may be jewels on the sleeve tabs and on her bertha along with the dark jewels on her hair and necklace. Her coiffure is framed in a halo of bows and jewels.
