"You only have to read the lines They're scribbly black and everything shines. Across the stream with wooden shoes With bells to tell the king the news A thousand misty riders climb up Higher once upon a time. Wandering and dreaming The words have different meaning." -Pink Floyd
Mantua, England,1735-1740 (made) Brocaded silk, hand-sewn with spun silk and spun threads, lined with linen, brown paper lining for cuffs, brass, canvas & pleated silk. One of the mantua’s characteristics was a long train, sewn as a flat piece of silk & arranged with each wearing. The train was folded up, then folded in & draped over a loop of thread on either side of the waist. Pinning up & draping a train successfully was an art & required the help of maids to achieve the perfect effect.
