Veil Date: ca. 1830 Culture: British Medium: silk Dimensions: 37 in. (94 cm) Hat veils like this were worn both to partially conceal the face modestly and also off the face, around the hat, to decorate it, as well as to facilitate flirtatious glances.
pair of tiny and narrow sized late 1860's lady's riding boots which were lined in white cotton and pink leather. They are field boot in style rather than the typical dress boot (so all you historical re-enactors out there who ride side saddle, field boots WERE worn then for riding!) and have square toed straight soles with spur rests on BOTH boots.
Ankle Boots These are a pair of woman's ankle boots, laced up the inside ankle. This practical footwear is a mix of fabric - blue and white check woven wool - and leather, with a black kid vamp to reinforce areas of wear. There is a small leather heel. The boots are well made and probably worn by a lady of the middle class. Date: 1840s The Museum of London
