In my opinion, the headwear of the late-1780s is the greatest in the history of the world.

Ah, what a charming little cap. I don’t think there is anything in the world that isn’t improved by a simple blue silk ribbon!

Mrs. William De Peyster, Jr. (Christiana Dally) by Charles Wilson Peale, 1798. Via the New York Historical Society.
The mother-in-law of the artist, one of my favorites of the 18th Century. Mostly because of his masterful depiction of clothing (look at that gorgeous neckerchief!)
Mrs. James Duane (1738-1821) by Ralph Earl, 1787. Via the New York Historical Society.
“Mary Livingston, the daughter of Robert Livingston, Jr., the third Lord of Livingston Manor, was married to James Duane on October 21, 1759. This portrait, although reversed, is virtually identical to Earl’s painting of Mrs. Alexander Hamilton, now in the Museum of the City of New York. Both portraits were apparently completed while Earl was in debtor’s prison in New York.”
Is anyone else totally in love with the idea of Ralph Earl painting this amazing portrait from Debtor’s Prison?
Evening Hat, 1920-1928, Cotton Felt, Machine Lace, and Metallic Wire, The Mint Museum
Did y’all miss me!? Sorry for the radio silence- I’ve been on vacation traipsing around North Carolina. One of the stops was at the Mint Museum in Charlotte, where they are doing an exhibit on historic costume. It was…ok. Some of the objects were wildly mislabled and they threw all kinds of crazy modern ribbons and trim and jewelery on the mannequins and gowns, but there was still some awesome stuff. Including this incredible hat! And they let you take pictures, which is always fabulous.
I’ll be posting more pictures of the costumes and accessories on my personal tumblr, thecityoftaylor.tumblr.com
