Vintage Bridal Fashion
1930's wedding gown/coat ensemble
Bruce Oldfield Wedding Collection
On the Wedding Day, Albumen Cabinet Card, Circa 1890 This cabinet card now in my collection formerly belonged to Anne Rice, author of "Interview with the Vampire" and many other books. Apparently while she was researching early photography for one book, she ended up establishing a collection that she has now sold. This really is an exceptionally lovely Wedding photo. The bride's hair piece and veil is magnificent. The card is marked "Williams, Sedalia, Mo."
Wedding dress with matching boots and bodice, ca 1865
Wedding Dress 1901, Italian, Made of silk and wool~~~~~The appliqués of this dress exemplify the whip-like curves and scrolls characteristic of the Art Nouveau period. Made in Rome for Mrs. Frederick Dand Sherman in 1901, while the white-on-white color palette would have been a conventional choice for a bride just after the turn of the century, the asymmetical trimming would have been a deliberately bold and fashion-conscious choice.
