Notes: Printed on border: "By Mrs. Jane Weaver." "The imperial lounging-cap possesses a very Oriental appearance when seen complete. Its composed of six portions of velvet in two alternate colors, a rich violet and dark crimson. The scroll, which appears black in the illustrations, is formed of narrow black ribbon velvet, with a gold thread at each edge. The design may be braided in narrow gold braid, or two silk braids of different colors. A violet braid on the crimson velvet, and a crimson braid on the violet velvet, has very rich effect. A long silk tassel made of the two colors, interspersed with gold, is fastened at the top, and hangs down the side of the cap. This would make a very pretty Christmas, New-Year's, or birthday gift for a gentleman." Written on border: "Dec 1964."
