This cabinet card is of a young child wearing the christening gown made from the wedding dress of Emily Rudman Tripp of Utica, New York. Tripp altered her gown into a christening dress for her first grandchild about 1870. The child in this picture is a great, great granddaughter. She sits on a fur robe draped over a wicker chair, and the cutwork embroidery of the gown is shown to full advantage.
