Sara Mayer & A. Morhanger (Dressmakers). Afternoon Dress with Applied Ribbon Lace, 1889-1892 (Back View). Made in Paris, France. This dress was worn by one of the two Rogers sisters, Cara or Anne, daughters of a wealthy American industrialist. This elaborately trimmed dress would have been considered appropriate for a married woman. The black-and-white colour combination probably represents half-mourning for Cara and Anne's sister, Millicent, who died aged only 17 in 1890.
