Content: Title from folder.
Content: Printed on border: "We give examples of this tendency to exaggerated size in the headdress Fig. 1. It consists of a huge pansy of the deepest, richest shades of velvet; the leaves are white gauze, and are frosted all over, so that they glitter by candle-light; two garlands of similar leaves and tendrils fall over the chignon." "Fig. 2. The may bell ornaments -- the bandelet round the head, the necklet, and the trimming below the waistband, are composed of small straw bells and crystal beads, and these are appended to black ribbon velvet, with white soutache sewn on in a waved line in the centre." Includes additional text.
Source note: Godey''s lady''s book. (Philadelphia : [s.n.] 1830-).
