DRESS, 1842-1852

Back To Era Before the Civil War

Gold silk taffeta
Gift of Elliot Richardson

Although this dress appears plain at first glance, a view from the side reveals decorative scallops down the arms. This is bound in the same fabric as the dress, and so it might be understated enough to be a Quaker dress.
