Mildred Burrage of Kennebunkport (1890-1983) studied and worked as an artist in Paris in the 1910s and became interested in Paris fashions.

She had a number of fashion drawings, which she may have received from a friend.

The unidentified fashion house described "la Pompadour" as a "Lovely evening gown in beautiful flowered taffeta. Straight line at the back, but full front. The fullness is given by gathers in the middle. Big sleeve giving an effect of flowers." The space after "price" (Prix) is blank.
