NAME: Cecile - PERIOD: 1877-1879. Ball dress in grey douppion silk trimmed with hand-embroideries and lace.

Sold at H Auction Rooms in Carlisle, December 2011. Late-16th or early-17th century coif. Linen with blackwork embroidery and metallic threads, decorated in a repeating foliate scroll design, trimmed with a gilt bobbin lace border and hand-clipped metal spangles. The top back is not gathered as is usually seen with this type of coif and might give a clue to the structure of the ‘pointy’ style. The long strings, if original, suggest this coif was tied on over braided and coiled hair.
