A jabot collar

At Market Lavington Museum we have a jabot collar, believed to date from the 1880s.

Our dummy wasn’t wearing the best outfit to show the collar off. It would probably have been worn on a dress with a higher neckline.

Apparently the term jabot is used for lacy collars falling from the throat and is taken from the French word for a bird’s crop.
