Jacket. 1885 - Paris
ℹ Dolman-sleeved jacket of cream silk voided velvet with a design of ostrich feathers, trimmed at the neck and front, cuffs and hems with white artic fox and a silk chenille fringe. Lined with machine quilted satin.
ℹ This dolman-sleeved jacket was considered the epitome of luxury and good taste in the late nineteenth century. It would have been thought highly fashionable in combining fur as a trimming and a feather design in the fabric, elements from the natural world that fascinated society at the time.
ℹ Made in the fashion house of Emile Pingat from expensive materials, it was a garment that only a wealthy, society lady could afford. The Paris fashion house of Pingat (1860-96) was as highly esteemed as that of Charles Worth and known for superb craftsmanship and elegance.

Do you know why 6 balls in cricket are called as an "Over"? Let's go back In time to colonial Britain.
With no advance technology to keep a count of number of legitimate deliveries the bowler bowls, what would the Umpire do to avoid confusion amidst the noise and chaos going on in the ground?
The umpires used to keep six pebbles in their pocket. After each fair ball bowled, they used to take one pebble out and put it in the other pocket.
It is very natural that they would call " IT'S OVER" , the moment they find no pebbles , when they put their hands inside the pocket at the end of 6 deliveries.
History always carves out it's own niche in the present. . . . .
