a Lady Mouse
Studies and completed illustrations for Gentleman Mouse and Lady Mouse
Beatrix Potter dressed the mice in authentic 18th-century costume, based partially on garments in the V&A’s collections. Gentleman Mouse(Miss Moussie's Hubby) wears court dress, with a tricorne hat. Lady Mouse(Miss Moussie) wears an open cotton gown, red silk quilted petticoat, apron and linen mob cap. The teacups date from about 1800.Pictures taken at the breakfast table of the Dutchess at Hilltop Hall.
No teacups where broken,no mice left without making a mess...FOODFIGHT....
