Date: 1405
Price: $34.00
Size: 54 mm
Comments: *1378, married 1401 (2nd wife of Stephan III ‘der Kneißl’) On her small seal, additionally, one can see a tiny ring impression, i.e. this is a seal impression on a seal impression. This secondary impression is by far the smallest seal impression we have ever seen. Her seal has two more interesting features: The inscription is in German (rather in Latin) and she depicts herself not in a pious standing position but in armor on a horse with a jousting lance! She was a quite liberated woman. Hurra für Elisabet!
