Wynne Davenport diamante stage dress

The signature trick of Lewis Davenport was his colour changing waistcoats. At the end of a trick the audience would notice that his waistcoat had changed colour. At the same moment his wife and assistant, Wynne, would walk on wearing a matching dress. This is one of the stage dresses that was made for her. At the end of the act they would take three curtain calls, each time wearing a different waistcoat and dress. The last of these quick changes was a diamante dress and a diamante waistcoat. The lady modelling the diamante dress is not Wynne Davenport.
