"Dress (Robe à l'Anglaise) 1785-1798 The apparent regularity of the pattern on this American-made dress suggests that the cotton was block-printed in England, but subtle differences in each vine, leaf, and flower indicate that they were meticulously hand-painted, revealing the fabric's Indian origins. The broad width of the yardage—forty-four inches—also points to Indian manufacture."

England 1787 The Countess of Effingham by George Haugh. Interesting picture of lady with hunting equipment. Is this Catherine, Lady Effingham, wife of the third earl, or Harriet Elizabeth, Lady Effingham, wife of the 4th, (3rd earl's brother.) Looks rather young to be the 41 yr old Catherine, but not impossible. The Earls Effingham were Howards.
