Lady's very long, off-white-coloured, light-weight crepe fabric jabot (perhaps crepe georgette?)
It folds over and is gathered in the centre (five rows of shirring). The bottom edges are rounded.
All edges are trimmed with a 1.9 cm deep white lace trim, which has a floral design in it. It is machine-sewn. No maker's identification.
The approximate age of this item is unknown. It likely dates from the late 19th-century or early 20th-century at the latest.
Belonged to Miss Jean Armstrong, who was born, raised and resided in Owen Sound, Ontario.
It may have previously belonged to Ms. Armstrong's mother (formerly Maria Maughan) or Mrs. George Snider of Owen Sound, Ontario.
