Details

Worn around the neck, the livery collar was a band of leather or velvet decorated with silver or gold devices, with more prestigious examples made entirely of precious metal. Although literary and visual references to such collars abound, they are often overlooked; Matthew Ward explores their cultural and political meaning and utility throughout the 15th century, particularly during the Wars of the Roses.
