"In this gown, by the little-known Parisian House of Weeks, both printed and embroidered peacock motifs enliven the skirt and bodice. The metallic threads of the embroidery add a shimmery quality to the bodice, while the blue and green colors of the birds are picked up in the sash, sleeve ends, and hem band." | 1910
