Pockets acknowledgements

This website is a collaborative project with Barbara Burman, Jonathan White and Seth Denbo at the Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton. It forms part of their research project: 'Pockets of history: production and consumption of women's tie-on pockets from c1690 -1914 '. This is ongoing with a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The V&A is very grateful to Barbara, Jonathan and Seth for the contribution of their research to this site.
