Looking for pictures of Queen Eufemia's tomb

Postby Elina » 17 Sep 2009, 18:31

I've become very interested in making a dress that is on one of the figures on the tomb of Queen Eufemia in Soro klosterkirke in Denmark. It is a surcoat with very interesting pleating, and it is worn by a woman figure with a crown. Next to her, there is a kneeling man in fashionable 14th century clothing. There is a picture of it in C.L Dahl's "Ath prydae synae claeder" on page 4.

Now I'm looking for all the info I can find. Does anyone have a source for pictures of this monument?

I also found some info in Marianne Vedeler's thesis that this dress is also mentioned in Camilla Luise Dahl's book "Dragt og pragt i Middelalderen". Does anyone here have this book at hand or would you know where to get it from?

I can probably help you with that. Where is a small little article about the tombplate which have ok pics of the dress and such. The article is mainly about the date of the plate. I also have the book mentioned "Dragt og magt" and might be able to get the book for you. Or I could copy the pages and the small articel and send to you?

I´ll look around for more info and return.

To which time is it dated?
Mordlysten krigsman, rå och hård i hjertat,
Och med ett samvete som helvet rymligt,
Skall rasa fritt med blodbestänkta händer
Och meja edra friska jungfrur af
Och edra fagra spenabarn som gräs

Louise, any of what you suggest would be great! Thank you so much already in advance!

Peter, the little booklet I have says it's dated to ca. 1365. Queen Eufemia wears a fabulous frilled veil and a fantastic amounts of bezants on her clothing. The dress on the crowned girl is a lot more simple, but it seems to have interesting pleats on it. Ever since reading Marianne Vedeler's dissertation on the Uvdal finds, I've been itching to make a pleated dress. However the Uvdal ones aren't actually very flattering; but this one looks like something one would actually be happy wearing.

Googling just now, I found this set with some nice pictures of the tomb, but unfortunately no close-ups of the dress I'm looking for.

This was the tomb I was talking about:
