THE NIGHT OF 14 November 1940 was clear and crisp. The full moon shone over the English Midlands, glinting on the frosty roof of the Cathedral Church of St Michael in Coventry.

FRINGE, FROG AND TASSEL: THE ART OF THE TRIMMINGS MAKER IN INTERIOR DECORATION (by Annabel Westman; Philip Wilson, rrp £50) In this book a distinguished textile historian traces the use of trimmings from 1320 to 1970. It is a scholarly, painstakingly researched and well-written account, copiously illustrated.

Westman has used paintings to show details of trimmings from the early centuries, many of them simple tassels and fringes of gold thread, or brightly coloured silks. In Salome with the Head of St John the Baptist, German School, c1450, the charger with the saint’s head…
