Family Christening Gown

This Christening gown has been in my family since 1877 and has been handed done through the family ever since. Great-Great-Grandfather Arthur William Jennet was the first to wear this christening gown in 1877. We are not sure who made this gown whether it was family member or a friend of the family but many people have worn it since. Only members of the Jennet family have worn this gown and I wore it when I was Christened.
