    Dress 1834-1836

    Christie's says this is 1850s. The ruffles maybe. The shape of the skirt, I don't think so. Would seem to fit late 1860s to me.

    “Polaire (“Pole Star”) was the stage name of French singer and actress Émilie Marie Bouchaud (1874–1939). Born in Algeria, one of her earliest hits was performing the French version of Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay. Toulouse-Lautrec portrayed her on a magazine cover in 1895 “At a time when tightlacing among women was in vogue, she was famous for her tiny, corsetted waist, which was reported to have a circumference no greater than 16 inches (410 mm).”

    Queen Mary of Teck, wife of King George V and the grandmother of Queen Elizabeth II. Her mother was a member of the British royal family, and her father was a German duke.


    Edith was theatrical, self indulgent, and impractical. By the time she was ten, she was already a girl of striking beauty and considerable talent. Her large, wide-apart blue eyes; long, almost blond hair; full, naturally red lips, and lively expression gave her a theatrical appearance that exactly suited her talents, for she proved to be a singer and pianist of above average ability. Both her beauty and her talent were so indulged by her mother that she soon did nothing but cultivate the two.
