Comment:	Re: SHK 19.0270 Southampton Portrait Discovered

Sorry, was this per my post? I was responding to the article at the link 
that JD provided -- i.e., the copy said her teeth were black. Maybe 
contact the author of the article, Catherine Kozak? Here is the passage 
in question:

'One example she cited was a German traveler to the English court, who 
described the queen's face as "oblong, fair, but wrinkled; her eyes 
small, yet black and pleasant; her nose a little hooked; her lips 
narrow, and her teeth black" ' (para. 14).

That's all I've got.

Best wishes,
Nicole
