Description
"This Plate exhibits the back of a female on the day of her marriage, which ceremony cannot take place but on the eve of a Friday. On her wedding-day the bride dresses in the richest clothes she can procure, and puts on all the jewels and other valuables she is possessed of. Both red and white paint is used in considerable quantities, while the eye-brows and eye-lids are stained black. They also take care to place, with great art, flowers, pearls, and jewels, both among the hair and braids, which hang down behind, as shewn in this Plate."--from source text.
