This Cabinet Card is an image of a fashionable woman. She clearly decided to wear one of her finest dresses and her favorite hat for her photograph session at the Art Studio of R. S. Schuyler, in Oxford, Michigan. The woman is wearing wire rim glasses and one glove. She is holding the second glove in her gloved hand. She is also holding something else in the gloved hand. Hopefully, a visitor to the Cabinet Card Gallery, will be able to identify the article she is holding along with the glove. Why is she wearing just one glove? Perhaps, she wants the photograph to show the ring that she is wearing on the middle finger of her ungloved hand.

  1. I would guess the other item she is holding is a handkerchief; obviously, not a useful one but extremely fashionable, delicate & ladylike.

  2. On closer perusal, perhaps it is a bit of veil she removed from her hat… really, those are the only two things that come to mind from examining the shape of the gauze.

    But the design of the top of that dress… pretty interesting.

  3. My thought was fancy useless handkerchief..perhaps one to just wave in the air. She is showing off that ring on her left hand…perhaps she was newly engaged or married. I wonder what was in the chair..a cape?? to go with that beautiful hat is my best guess:)
