Collection’s Highlight: Light Green and Black Beaded Dress

When I came across this dress it made me think of Titanic and the red beaded dress Rose wears as she contempates her fate on the back of the ship. This dress has less of a train to slip on, but still has a bit of one. And boy does it have a great deal of beading! 

Dress, ca 1910-1920?, Silk.  Fenimore Art Museum, Cooperstown, New York, Gift of Alice Jones, N0319.1948.
