This is the third volume of a series, Collezione Antonio Ratti. The 95 specimens of silk ribbons and cravates selected and analyzed by Irmgard Peter represent a group of approximately 450 ladies' cravates, for the most part documented to Charles Rebours and dated from 1865 to 1880. They provide documentary evidence of the production of Saint Etienne, one of the most important centers engaged in the manufacture of this type of textile.
