Mary Todd Lincoln's Dress
Mary Lincoln’s purple velvet skirt and daytime bodice are believed to have been made by African American dressmaker Elizabeth Keckly. The first lady wore the gown during the Washington winter social season in 1861–62. Both pieces are piped with white satin, and the bodice is trimmed with mother-of pearl buttons. An evening bodice was included with the ensemble. The lace collar is of the period, but not original to the dress.

Victorian Tea Society of Providence was established in 2001 to bring together Ladies and Gentlemen who share a love for the Victorian Era and to make new friends.
We are a society of women and men dedicated to the enjoyment of tea and friendship. We lunch, laugh and learn while relaxing with other tea lovers.
Based in the New England area, located in Rhode Island. In our small groups, we each take turns being the host or hostess of the month. The tea party host or hostess may choose to serve a luncheon with a formal, informal, or even a witty theme. He or she may even plan an outing to visit a tea house, museum, etc.There is a $10.00 monthly fee, which is given to the host or hostess for that month to help defray the costs. That way we don't have to charge an annual membership fee.
Join us! Simply contact us here at the bottom of the page. Give us your full name, email address, and tell us a little about yourself.We'd love to have you!
Would you like to join us for a cup of tea~ Meet new friendship the old fashioned way?
