Ladies collar

Collars and chemisettes were popular additions to the day dress of the 1850s-60s.  They were made of cambric, muslin, lace and net and could be highly embroidered.   This collar is embroidered with a round flower design.  It was attached to the dress with hooks and eyes so was interchangeable with other dresses.
