    Young woman's day dress, 1870

  • Maria Vazquez

    The colors displayed in the Benton Museum Victorian collection is astounding; one usually doesn't think of such bright colors when they think of the Victorian era, but Aniline (sp?) dyes allowed for the creation of bright green and purples, which made a lovely shade of brown when mixed together. All of these colors were very popular during the time as displayed here in this American Victorian dress.
