This is a beautiful old and dated 1884 CDV image of a much loved baby sitting on an antique Victorian paisley throw, wearing a lace dress. In the Victorian era, boys wore frocks with pleated skirts, or tunics and blouses over pleated skirts, until the age of three or five. Often you will also see a tartan sash. A portrait of the Prince of Wales in a Scottish kilt in 1849 gave rise to this vogue for boys. It was found in Kingston, Ulster County, New York.
