Description
The central image shows a bearded man wearing a black top hat, a long, wide-sleeved black overcoat or cloak with a black fur collar, a double-breasted burgundy waistcoat with dark buttons and a black collar, and a white cravat. To the viewer's right is a woman in a white, short-sleeved evening dress covered by a pale blue opera coat. The coat has wide, pink-lined sleeves trimmed with white tassels and ornamentation. Its collar is wide and cape-like, with ends secured by a blue belt at the waist. The coat is edged with white fur, which matches the narrow, fur boa wrapped around the woman's neck. The woman wears white shoes and elbow-length gloves edged with white ruffles. She has a pink bonnet with an upturned brim; the hat ties under the chin and is adorned with pink bows and a single pink plume. The woman carries a closed, white fan. A small boy wears a black top hat, a knee-length cape with a black fur collar, pale, high-waisted trousers, a pointed, yellow waistcoat, black boots, and a shirt with a high, white collar. A nurse or maidservant helps him with his cape. She wears a pink dress with sleeves that puff above the elbow and are fitted at the wrist. Her dress has a wide white collar and a white apron tied at the waist. The woman wears white gloves and stockings and black shoes that lace up the ankle. A fringed, white shawl is over her left arm, and her white bonnet has a ruffled brim and a pink bow. It appears that the family is readying itself for a night out. Assorted women's fashion items border this central image. The left column starts with a pale pink poke bonnet trimmed with pink ruffles and bows and white plumes. Below it is a maroon bonnet with an upturned brim. The brim is lined in white with white, lace-edged ruffles, and the bonnet is trimmed with checked, yellow ribbon. The next image is the tight, deep green bodice of an off-the-shoulder dress. The neck is edged with white lace, and the bodice has a line of green ornaments running down the front. The dress has split green skirts over a white underskirt and large, puffed white sleeves. Below the bodice is a small white purse or handbag, trimmed in blue with a blue ribbon handle. The final image on the left is a white bonnet trimmed with rows of blue ribbon and bows and with a lace-edged brim. The column to the right begins with an image of a pale blue poke bonnet with blue ribbons, bows, and flowers at the crown and white ruffles edging the brim. It is followed by a green poke bonnet with a ruffle-edged brim and green, checked ribbons and bows. Below the green bonnet is a lacy white fichu or collar. Next is a pale pink handbag decorated with dangling gold beads and a gold handle. The final image is a ruffled, white bonnet decorated with pink ribbons and bows.
