After 1475. Monument to Alice Chaucer Duchess Suffolk 1404-1475 (70). Wrist Garter in St Mary's Church, Ewelme, Oxfordshire. The effigy was, apparently, viewed to determine how a lady should wear the garter at the re-commencement of Lady of the Garter appointments in 1901 after a gap of several hundred years. A particularly fine Cadaver underneath the chest on which Alice's effigy lies. Full-length in a shroud.
