Abstract:
The caption on the back reads: "The exquisite national costume of Panama 'La Pollera,' is historically interesting, handed down from mother to daughter for generations. This gorgeous gown is hand-made in cross stitch or applique on fine white lawn, adorned with the finest of hand-made lace. As many as 30 pair of 'tembleques,' sparkling hair ornaments on springs, are worn with elaborately ornamented gold combs as the accepted head-dress. The 'cadena chata' (chain of gold) the 'escapulario' (flat gold pendants worn front and back of the neck) and the gold cross are symbolic jewelry of the pollera."
