I can't identify any of them, but I am interested in knowing. I hope you will be posting the answers.

I can only identify two, maybe. They are the Unicorn in Captivity, part of the Unicorn Tapestries at The Cloisters, and what looks like a costume for the Dolores Umbrage character in the Harry Potter stories. Your quiz intrigues me and I look forward to reading your answers!

you have been wondering here Queenie, suggest they might be in the V & A as I know you are in London, but maybe I am wrong!
Will see you tomorrow at the FOQ, so looking forward to meeting you

No 1 looks Medieval so is a dress of Ann Bowlyn?
No 2 The unicorn tapestry I think the cloisters
No 3 Is a woollen patchwork quilt, block of cheese, basic chair, so it is a display of a workers home but I don't know where. But then again it might be from the Weasly's house in the Harry Potter Museum.
No 4 Is Doris Umbridge's out fit so it must be the Harry Potter museum. Who wouldn't know that cardigan.

I think the fabrics belong to a Queen, they look expensive fabrics for their time, but it is just a guess!

Queeniepatch said...

Not bad, Carolyn.

Queeniepatch said...

Not a Queen, but almost.
