Underpants of Hendrik Casimir I

description

Summary

Underwear is worn directly on one’s body and therefore is rarely kept. This 17th-century pair of underpants is therefore exceptional. Only one other (royal) pair of underpants, of white silk, has been preserved, in England. The underpants in this display case were worn by Hendrik Casimir, more of whose belongings are displayed in this gallery. Notably, this undergarment is made of white linen – most were made
of coloured wool.
