Quandary Resolution 1400
nescient, raccoon, chatelaine, rococo
There, in the asylum's decaying, ornate rococo orangery, I was introduced to a portly Marie Antoinette sporting a threadbare Davy Crockett raccoon skin hat and bearing a rusty chatelaine from which numerous tawdry knick-knacks were suspended; and who, while taking the air, was pleased to acknowledge the devotions of her courtiers and to cluck at her ladies in waiting, all in happy nescience of their truancy and her dementia.
