Cream Damask Girdle Address Prayer Book - Renaissance Dress Accessory


Prayer book? Not really! It's a damask covered address book that hangs from your belt or waist brooch making it convenience to add contact information for all the new people you meet at Costume Balls, Ren faires, SCA events or other festivals.

This girdle book is made with a cream damask fabric and has a cream ribbon for tying it closed as well as a twisted cord for hanging. The book is approx. 3 x 4 inches and hangs approx. 18" from the belt or girdle.

Clearance - Discontinued Item
Slightly shop-worn because of pale color, but still looks great!

Historical Note: Often members of nobility are seen with small books in their hands or hanging from a girdle in paintings of the Renaissance. Usually these were prayer books or "books of hours" and many still exist in museums and private collections. These books were often very ornate, covered with leather or fabric and embellished with embroidery and adorned with gold, silver, pearls and precious gems.
