“There were beautiful Friesland girls in wooden shoes and coarse petticoats, with solid gold crescents encircling their heads, finished at each temple with a golden rosette and hung with lace a century old. Some wore necklaces, pendants, and earrings of the purest gold. Many were content with gilt or even with brass, but it is not an uncommon thing for a Friesland woman to have all the family treasure in

her headgear. More than one rustic lass displayed the value of two thousand guilders upon her head

that day.”   — From Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates
