This is a CdV from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
The photograph is from C T Cornwell of Cold Water, Mich.
Cdv’s with rounded corners appeared in the 1870’s. This dress appears to have dropped shoulders, which were popular in the 1860’s. However her ears are showing (In 1865 ears were shown..but not before that.). So I will guess 1875, her clothing was a bit out of style and I think she may have been wearing a snood. A snood is a lace net that was tied tightly around your hair.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
