The Society’s collection includes several British gift books which were, of course, sold in American book shops and competed side by side with their U.S. counterparts. This plate appears in a gift book published in London and sold in New York, Paris, and Boston. The lovely bride and her attendants stand before a tall mirror -- the light-colored gown and long veil reflect the style of dress made popular by Queen Victoria at her wedding to Prince Albert in 1840.
