Ivory satin dress, 1921, with silk embroidered vine and tiny faux pearl “grapes.” The scalloped apron of embroidered netting is attached with satin bows. Portions of the bridal headpiece bear wax flower buds and faux pearls. The skirt is short, reflecting the style during the 1920s. This dress was worn by the donor’s mother, Annie Kangeter (1896-1990) who married Dr. Charles D. Boette, April 14, 1921 at her home in Charleston. Annie’s sister, Mamie Pfaehler made the dress.
