Provenance

Anna and Daniel Stoner had only three children, one of whom was Ola Glen Stoner, born June 25, 1889. Ola married Morris N. Pigman in 1922. Ola's silk satin dress with a hemline between the ankle and knee and train emanating from the shoulder was typically fashionable for 1922. It is much less fitted than her mother's dress of 1888, and in keeping with the looser fashions of the 1920's. The pattern of the silk lace is beautifully displayed as it drapes from the shoulder to wrist. Ola's husband, Morris, was the son of Margaret and Daniel Morris Pigman, a manager of a dry goods department store. Morris was a bank clerk prior to his marriage and continued working in banks in the years following. Ola and Morris had only one child, a daughter, named Margaret Ann, who donated her mother's and grandmother's dresses to the Historic Costume & Textiles Collection.
