Notes
Content: Printed on border: "The cap, figure 4, is designed for a breakfast toilet at watering-places." "The handkerchief, figure 5, is a new and extremely elegant article. It presents to the eye an appearance as though a group of embroidered leaves and flowers had been transferred to the ground-work, being attached to it only by a small portion of each. This is not the case, though they are in actual relief. The filling up of the design is in the usual style of needle-work ornaments." Written on border: "July 1859." Includes additional text.
Source note: Harper''s magazine. (New York : Harper Brothers, 1850-).
