The eye mask does nothing to conceal the charm of this lovely reveler whose dazzle throws all other participants into shadowy insignificance. Not only was this wonderful design used to promote the first grand masked ball of the 1894 season, it was also utilized to call attention to another masked affair some weeks later.
