This image was on the cover of the Harper's back in 1882. Featuring what was called Magnolia satin with embroidered roses. The shoes apparently were also made from Magnolia Satin and had buckles made from diamonds and rubies. Even in Black and white the detail on this is extraordinarily! It s a ball gown with oodles of the Magnolia satin bunching from the waist and flowing through the train to the floor ending in gathered ruffles. A matching hand fan and crafted roses at the shoulder top off this lovely hand beaded dress.
