   schema:description "This book takes the reader on a fascinating tour of the world of women's accessories and in doing so gives a sweeping view of nineteenth-century British cultural history. A woman's accessories were much more than the incidental finishing touches to her elaborate dress. The colour and material makeup of a pair of gloves indicated her class aspirations. A 'language of the fan' was developed so that she could secretly communicate with potential lovers. The sun reflecting through rose-coloured parasols allowed a woman of a certain age to look young again. Even the vanity set on a woman's bedroom dresser indicated her affinity with the Orient and approval of colonial expansion. This study reveals the beliefs, values, attitudes, and assumptions imbedded in women's accessories, unraveling the complexities and contradictions of the women who used these artifacts and the Victorian society which created them."@en ;
