During the extravagant era of the Gilded Age, Newport, Rhode Island, served as a summer retreat for America's social aristocracy. Here the "Four Hundred" of high society built palaces on magnificent estates and entertained each other. Tom Tierney recreates this breathtaking world in a volume featuring two dolls and a wardrobe of 30 costumes once worn by the Vanderbilts, Astors, Belmonts, and other members of the social elite.Worn during the height of Newport's social seasons during the 1870s through the early 1900s, the stunning creations range from velvet afternoon dresses and elaborate outfits for costume balls, to fashionable dinner attire and satin evening gowns.
