The Guildsman’s Wife
To be called madam is a glorious thought,
And so is going to church and being seen
Having your mantle carried like a queen
Chaucer does not actually tell us that the Guildsmen had taken their wives with them on the Pilgrimage to Canterbury, but he does describe them rather well. So we have chosen to assume they went too, as it allows us the fun of having more than just 2 women in our Collection!
The Guildsman’s Wife is shown wearing a similarly patterned coral dress to her husband’s tunic, along with a very decorative wimple head dress.
