So, the next interesting (for me, at least!) part of the exhibition is the beginning of the 19th century (1800-1830s).
This white muslin dress fascinated me. It was a wedding dress, worn in 1807.
The white satin slippers date from about 1810-1820.
These leather and stripe cotton ankle boots date from 1810.
The soldier is wearing a uniform of Captain John Swayne and it dates from 1812-13. Here it is on the Salisbury Museum website.
A gorgeous green pelisse dress from 1820s. It closes at the front.
This muslin cap decorated with embroidery dates back to 1830.
I have never seen a lady’s workbox before so I found it very interesting. This one also dates from my favourite time – 1830. It has red silk lining and is filled with needlework accessories.
