Extract from the book written by Michael C. W. Fieggen, Les Bijoux Des Français: “Each province, town or village had its own distinctive costume for women and between 1800 and 1830 a great variety of headdresses emerged. Norman headdresses were attached by pins, usually two in number, sometimes three or four for the larger headdresses.”
