This very pretty apron was once displayed in the "old colonial cottage" on the 1st floor landing of the William Paul Hall building in Hamilton. The display was dismantled c 1972.

It is a white cotton apron and has a narrow bib which is gathered at the neck. There is a band for tying around the neck. The waistband has a narrow lace edge down each side. The skirt is a 3/4 shape and is joined to the bib by a waistband which continues to tie around waist. The skirt has two darts for shaping and two pockets on the front set obliquely on the left and right handsides, with lace at bottom. There is a 60mm deep lace border right around the edge of the skirt.
