Margaret Conyers

or Mrs John Buxton of Tibbenham, painted at or about 1640 is wearing a confection in lace. She seems to be wearing a lace edged coif, folded back to show off her hair, which looks almost modern in style. Her black bodice sleeves are constricted just below the elbow, presumably to show off the slashing. Not quite matching collar, cuff and elbow lace decoration and a nice necklace of pearls too. Picture is in the Norwich galleries collection.

  1. well this blows out of the water the arguement about never showing you hair when wearing a coif!
