This is a beautiful hand made rubbing of Lady Margaret Peyton (nee Bernard) rather famously known as 'The Lace Lady', created with gold wax crayon on a special black rag paper. This rubbing is taken from a replica of a memorial 'brass' and measures 30" high X 15" wide; the original plate is featured in the parish church in Isleham. in the County of Cambridgeshire, England and is dated 1427. Lady Margaret's engraved effigy is featured on the wall of the parish church together with her husband Thomas Peyton and Thomas's second wife Margaret(nee Frances). Our Margaret here was the daughter of Sir John Bernard and his sole heir. She wears a butterfly headdress, briefly popular at that time, with gauze stretched over a wire framework and requiring a plucked hairline; it was thought to be improper for a lady to show any hair in public. Her gown is finely embroidered, not with lace in fact, but with fine Italian brocade.
