Silk embroidered cape | Met Museum | 1795-1800
Dress || Met Museum || 1805
The sleeves look convertible! I also think the Regency bustle is a little too large here.. beware the dreaded hump!
French ensemble | Napoleon and the Empire of Fashion | 1804
Steel tiara (French), MFA Boston, nineteenth century
The museum doesn’t give anything about this piece besides a description of what it looks like, but because of the half moon I believe this went with a fancy dress costume from the latter half of the nineteenth century.
Brass and glass hair comb (French), MFA Boston, nineteenth century
French metal tiara, MFA Boston, nineteenth century
A Thomas Rowlandson print depicting a wild masquerade at the Pantheon in London in 1809.
I love this! Brilliant.
