Embroidery Sample (USA), 1930–39
This is a Embroidery sample. It is dated 1930–39 and we acquired it in 1977. Its medium is cellulose acetate, glass and cellulose nitrate bead. It is a part of the Textiles department.
The fashion industry embraced the wide range of new fabrics woven with semi-synthetic fibers to produce stylish clothing. The shape of this embellishment indicates it is a sample for the neckline of a woman's garment and is made from a shimmering mix of natural and semi-synthetic beads.
