England, Great Britain (probably), 1740-1745, Silk, embroidered with coloured silk and silver thread. 'Court dress' was an exclusive and very ornate style of clothing worn by the aristocracy, the only people usually invited to attend at Court. The style of the robe is quite old-fashioned, and based on the 17th-century mantua. This ensemble recalls a garment worn by the Duchess of Queensbury in 1740.
