Jabot, detachable neck ware accessory in muslin, with lace edging.


Jabot, muslin, with lace edging; heart shaped piece of material with two pieces of material extending from it; where they intersect there is a floral-style circular piece of lacework.

This is one of a number of items in a collection of needlework on cotton and linen by Annie O’Dwyer (nee Killeen, of Moleskey) who lived between 1888-1979, of Annagh House, Miltown Malbay.

This jabot is a detachable neck ware accessory. It would have been sewn on to the garment via the neckband. Annie wore it to dress-up her frocks on special occasions.

It was donated to the collection by Annie’s daughter Mary Coughlan (nee O’Dwyer) and family, Lahinch, with the assistance of her daughter Ann Coughlan.
