Sack, Saque, Robes à la Française
Textile ca. 1740; gown 1770-1776
Jane Sloan LeConte of Shrewsbury, New Jersey, owned this elegant gown, which helped mark her status as a “genteel” woman.
Two of the LeConte children moved to Georgia after the Revolution where they ran Woodmanston plantation and benefitted from the labor of many enslaved people.
