Imogen Rush, Dowager Marchioness of Lavington
+ description: Lady's Evening Dress circa 1810
A Regency matron--in magnificent full dress with a trained overskirt of mousselaine de soie over a lutestring bodice and skirt--is ready for a special evening occasion. Her gown has a dramatic wired standing collar of tiffany which rises to meet her glace silk turban. Her ostrich plumes are attached to her turban with a fine moonstone; it matches her substantial necklace and the inserts on the vertical band decorating her overskirt.
