History of Artefact Art Deco - French material and design. Expensive when first made probably made by someone's dressmaker.

Historian - 'These garments were very fashionable at the time and probably quite expensive.'
Historian Rosalinda Hardiman
Previous Owners Josie Carroll
Special Memories 'It came from a family friend, educated in France, her mother was a very strong woman who would host dinner parties and entertain people. Her mother was a well educated, proud woman. All her possessions were dwindling away when she was housed in a nursing home. All her other items were sold at Christie's. This is precious because it links me to these people and allows me to re-create the period of Art Deco in my mind.'
