Description

Said to be collected by F.N.G. Starr. The dress apparently came to the ROM with a male and female doll attached to the back. For conservation reasons, these were separated and the 3 items were put on display separately. The collector may have added the dolls to the dress.

See set (938.48.3.1-3).
