Beaded evening dress

About this object

Emily Tinne was especially fond of beaded evening dresses and owned dozens of them. The decorative glass bugle beads were all sewn on by hand by skilled needlewomen. Many of the dresses were imported from France, but this is the only one in Emily’s wardrobe with a maker’s label. Most were simply labelled Made in France.
