Designed and handmade in the 1920s at the height of Egyptomania, when all things Egyptian inspired were ‘de rigour’ comes this simple and beautiful English day dress.
Hand embroidered in silk onto an off white cotton muslin it shows depictions of processional figures, camels, oxen and urns all in profile and inspired by the hieroglyphs and wall decorations found in the tombs in The Valley of The Kings.
