Coronation Dress of Alexandra Feodorovna, born Princess Charlotte of Prussia: 1825, Russian. "The silk-lined dress with a train is made of silver brocade...The item is of delicate forms, with a square cut of the bodices...The hem of the bell-shaped skirt is completed with a wadded roll and is embroidered with silver faceted threads. The long train...is executed in the form of a thrown open dress with a little bodice and pleats on the narrowed back."
Mitts 1830s- unknown (Country). Black lacy silk knit with embroidery of metal beads. These mitts, reaching to just below the bend of the elbow, have a geometric knit pattern and they are decorated with shiny beads. Because they allow fingers to be freely moved, mitts are more functional than gloves. They became popular in the late 18th century. Some fashion plates of the period depict women embroidering or reading when wearing such mitts. Kyoto Costume Institute.
