    Lady Curzon in her famous Peacock Dress

    This famous peacock dress was worn by Lady Curzon at the evening ball which followed the Delhi Durbar in 1903, the glittering highlight of her husband’s term as Viceroy of India. One guest wrote, 'You cannot conceive what a dream she looked'. The dress was embroidered by Indian craftsmen with metal thread and jewels on gold cloth so it would glisten in a room lit by electricity. Admire this exquisite feat of needlework in the entrance to the Eastern Museum at Kedleston Hall, Derbyshire, England, which displays a collection of Asian objects acquired by Lord Curzon during his travels.
