Not on view

This infant's jacket is exquisitely constructed with dressmaking details including pleating, hemstitching, binding, drop lining and detailed rendering of the rabbits. The manufacturer and retailer, Best & Co. was renowned for fine luxury merchandise and Liliputian Bazaar was at the apex of childrenswear venues in New York. The charming logo of a human hand holding small figures refers to the Lilliputians in "Gulliver's Travels."
