Victorian Tambour Lace early 1900's.
A silk dress from the 1860s. The vivid colour of this dress was achieved through the use of synthetic dyes first discovered by the British chemist William Perkins in the 1850s. These dyes, which were extracted from coal tar and were known as aniline dyes, became extremely fashionable and produced intense colours which could not be made using traditional natural dyes.
