A Letter From Their Excellencies


Baronial Letter for

March 2011


The Baron & Baroness lessons/discussion was held and the attendance was strong. We will likely repeat the discussions in the future so if you are interested in learning the inner workings of being Baron and Baroness let us know.

While attending Winter’s End in Terra Pomaria, we witnessed Baron Michael & Baronessa Francesca step up to take their oaths and don the Baronial Corronets! Huzzah!

We also witnessed Their Majesties award our very own Constance Wyatt with the Goutte de Sang, Huzzah!

We attended St Bridget and had a great time. Thanks to the autocrats Kolfinna kráka Randolfsdóttir and Rebecca Fletcher for a very nice event.

Kolfinna and Rebecca were both awarded the Golden Torc for their efforts. Colin was admitted into

the Order of the Heart of Three Mountains. Huzzah!!!!

Just this weekend past we braved the weather to attend the An Tir Kingdom Arts and Sciences competition and cry out

Huzzah! for Malcolm MacGregor who is now on vigil for the Order of the Laurel.

Tuirrean ni Chaoilte dal gCais- A citizen of Three Mountains is likewise on vigil for the Order of the Laurel. Huzzah!

This year we will have an on-line orders meeting. If you are a member of one of the Baronial Orders (except Heart of Three Mountains) please sign up for the Yahoo group for your order. Before the end of March the lists will be updated and more details will be provided.

We are accepting nominations for Honour Feast 2012; and don’t forget to keep sending in those awards recommendation letters in.

The Orders meetings will soon be upon us and we need names to discuss!

From your Chronicler...Do you want to share the news about a good book, a cool SCA type site...please do! A New Feature of The Plume.....Any Craft or Historic related book reviews you would like to share feel free to complete a Creative Content Release and share away... And I'm now listing one cool medieval site a month. Usually, I'm trying to make it one I haven't seen listed elsewhere, unless it's been on a focus list and not made the rounds of the general interest SCA lists in the area yet that I've seen. Or, I just think it's very cool and has been helpful, and I sometimes get overwhelmed by so many websites being listed that just one to explore at a time is a treat!


Cool Link

A New NEW Feature of The Plume.....Cool online link for SCA-dians. This link will bring up an 8mb manual written by authors at the Central European University on: Dress, Jewels, Arms and Coat of Arms: Material Culture and Self-Representation in the Late Middle Ages with Glossary and Bibliography

Masterpieces of Illumination: The World's Most Famous Manuscripts 400-1600

by Ingo F. Walther, Edited by Norbert Wolf

Taschen 25th Anniversary, Taschen gmbH, 2005, Hardcover 503 pages

Language: English, ISBN-10: 382284750X, ISBN-13: 978-3822847503

LC Classification: ND 2920 .W365

Product Dimensions: 12.6 x 9.7 x 1.6 inches

Shipping Weight: 6.8 pounds

Look on amazon and the 5 star reviews for this book abound.

Wonderful overview of the subject. A reference book I go back to time and again. As an illuminator it lets me quickly settle on a period of time that I want to delve deeper into and find my other art books to reference. The discussions of the actual artistic detail of each piece are helpful and serve as a wonderful art history resource and survey of a very broad subject. As a starting book for anyone getting their feet wet with scribal arts and manuscript illumination this is a great reference tool. The historical context alone allows you to wrap your head around a frame of a body of work spanning years from the ancient world of AD 400 to the late 1500 when the printing press was making its debut. The breadth of the number of countries touched on was incredible as well. I can't say enough good things. The appendix contains artist biographies, along with a comprehensive bibliography, glossary, and index. The reproductions here are quality and make me long to see the original art. This book will definitely always have a home on my shelf. At less than $30 new, it was a steal! And I just checked amazon and it was listed for under $20! wow!

This one is 5 plumes out of 5 all the way.

From the Bookshelf...

by Susan Benjamin
The Smithsonian Illustrated Library of Antiques, prepared by the Cooper Hewitt Museum
1983, Hardcover, p.128. LC:82-72761
This thin volume has 33 color illustrations of some of the most beautiful enamels in the world and 100 black and white. All the enamels described are glass fused to a metal foundation. The writer describes the process and how it was done historically; how it has evolved over time; where it is now.
      She covers the early origins of enamel type work and extant examples from Egypt, Byzantium, Persia, India, China, Japan, Russia, and Scandinavia and discusses some of the artistic details of the enamel examples still to be seen from these countries.
     The continent of Europe is treated separately with the history of the Holy Roman Empire, the Carolingian and Ottonian Empires and Spain, Venice, France and Germany. Some names of European enamelers are known and remembered since enamel is a time consuming and expensive process that was mainly the perview of the nobility and the Church. Great Britain merits a chapter of its own.
       There is a one page glossary that is fairly inclusive in the back and a nice reading and reference list that includes, "A Technical Study of Opaque Red Glass of the Iron Age in Britain." Proceedings of the PreHistoric Society, Cambridge, England, 1972 by Hughes, M. J. that I would love to get my hands on.   She also has a list of public displays of enamels around the world and a fairly comprehensive index.
     It was an informative and enjoyable read. Not so much a how-to, as informative about the art itself.
I'd give it 3 plumes out of 5.

European Tapestries: 1450-1750: A Catalogue of Recent Acquisitions, Spring 1986
by Simon Franses
Published by J Franses Ltd Antique Tapestries, Carpets, and Textiles, London, 1986, Hardcover, 43.pp.

This is a record of 9 unique examples of European tapestries that were chosen for inclusion in the catalogue because of their considered importance or signifigance in the history and development of tapestry design and weaving.

As is usual in a sale or museum catalogue detailed information has been given about the pieces with place and date of weaving, materials used, though not exhaustive in that respect, dimensions (width and height), design and artist, weaver and workshop, description with information and subject and scene, the sources from which it's derived, related tapestries in terms of artist or subject or patron or weaver, provenance, literature as a list of published sources from which the information derives as a bibliography.
The 9 tapestries discussed are: 1. The Lady with Palm Before Cloth of Gold, Franconian mid 15th Century, 2.) Scenes from the Life of St. Julian of LeMans French from about 1515, 3.) Mille Fleurs, Brussels, early 16th century,  4.) The Union of the Romans and the Sabines, Brussels, mid 16th century, 5.) La Musique, Beauvais, 1690, 6,) Le Triomphe De Venus, Gobelius, First Quarter of 18th Century, 7.) The Fish Quay and The Gypsy Fortune Teller, English, First Quarter of the 18th Century,  8.)L'Oiseau Royal, Aubussen, 2nd quarter of 18th century, 9.) Le Sommeil De Renaud, Gobelins, 1753.

I bought and own and reference it for the patterns and beauty of the cloth. Tapestries have always held a fascination for me. How can you warp 17-10 strands in an inch and achieve such rich and exacting detail. I now study examples of floral motifs in medieval art and try to note patterns so the discussions in the book touching on that subject are interesting to me. I like catalogues because they are not information that can necessarily be found everyday, but for most SCA purposes I would probably only rate this a 2 1/2 plumes out of 5.
