Silken peacock dress

The famous Peacock Dress worn by Mary Lady Curzon at the evening ball which followed thecoronation in Delhi in 1903. It was embroidered by Indian craftsmen who used metal thread and jewels on cloth of gold to get a peacock feather representation that glistened when the room was lit by electricity. It is currently on loan from the Victoria and Albert museum.
