Refnaes

An image from F. C. Lund's portfolio, “Dansk Nationaldragter” from the Historiemaler Series (Kolding, 1915)

 

Lund's series is on historic Danish folk costumes, and interestingly, several of his models knit or wear knitted garments. This image depicts a girl from Refsnæs (in north Jutland, or Nordjylland), who knits while she walks in wooden shoes, also carrying what looks like a cask of butter on her head.
