Circa 1893 Silk evening dress made by Louise Winter. This evening dress is decorated with net panels embroidered with gold thread and beetle wing cases from a species of jewel beetle. The panels were probably made in India where Madras and Calcutta were centers for beetle-wing embroidery made for the European market. The iridescent blue-green beetle wing cases reflect the light like sequins.
