Halloween Thrifting Challenge: Early Stuart Era (1603-1625)

Mary, Countess of Howe | Thomas Gainsborough, c. 1764


Although painted in the mid 1770s, the costume and accessories deliberately echo seventeenth century fashion a la Van Dyk. Such as the lace edged collar at her decolletage, pearl edging to open robe gown with red quilted petticoat beneath, diamond shaped ruby brooch to front of bodice with strings of pearls, and the large silk bow at elbow, and sleeves that extend to wrists. Detail of The Honourable Mrs Graham (1757-1792) by Thomas Gainsborough, 1775.
