  • "an elaborate headdress of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries which began as the golden net caul, crepine, reticulated cap of velvet or satin covered with a jeweled gilt net. It developed fantastic two-horned shapes and was finally supplanted by the tall hennin with long, flowing veil in the fifteenth century." - The Dictionary of Costume; R. Turner Wilcox
