1908-1910 Lace Evening Coat
Elaborate, ornate coat of black lace and braid overlay on black silk satin. Edgings of pleated black silk chiffon around neckline, down front, around hem, and around the edge of a very wide bell sleeve. Velvet tie at neck
This coat was donated by Elizabeth Shedd Mykrantz and either her mother, Agnes Jeffrey Shedd, or mother-in-law, Alice McCormick Mykrantz, could have been the proud owner of this elaborate coat. Both were women whose husbands ran successful Columbus businesses. Frederick Shedd ran the E.E. Shedd Mercantile Company, founded by his father in 1852. It remained in business until 1938. Frank E. Mykrantz founded Mykrantz & Sons Drug Company.
