'Bartholomew Dandridge (British, 1691-1755), Portrait of a girl with a basket of flowers.' This grandly-dressed girl is still dressed as a child,the hanging strip to be seen at the back of her dress being one of a pair of leading strings. Such strings symbolized her dependance on her parents. Her gown - as most children's gowns did - would have laced up the back.
