Story

(acc. no. 451)

Spitalfields in London was the heart of the English silk industry in the 18th century, where wealthy men and women bought rich, patterned fabrics for their clothes and furnishings. This beautiful silk dress dates from the 1740s and belonged to an upper-class Jacobite family.

Before being donated to the Museum the dress was used by several generations of a local family as a dressing-up costume, and was even put through a washing machine!
