Dressing gown (front)
Add to album

This is the front of a woman's quilted cotton dressing gown. Made by McLintock & Sons of Barnsley in Yorkshire, the dressing gown dates from between around 1900 and 1905 and was worn by the donor's grandmother, Elize Connel.

The cotton is printed with a design of fans in reds, beiges and yellow on a dark green background.

A early type of dressing gown existed in medieval times when it was necessary to wear something when paying a night-time visit to the privy (toilet).
