A Tippet! or Two!

Dear Chicks, I think that I have found me a tippet!  Thanks to Mrs. Hancock who provided the trail to follow for totally different reasons! 
This image from the British Museum, of Miss Tandy dated c 1752 clearly shows an ermine tippet.

It is raining tippets, again from the British Museum.  The date range is pretty wide on this one, c 1758-82.


  1. How cool is that! Think I'll me makin' up one of those!
    --Mrs. S

  2. Miss Boylston, is this a tippet, from Mrs. Peabody's post about the Yellow Gown at the Met?

  3. Mrs. Peabody, I think I may have found you another tippet...
