Costume design, possibly by Seymour Lucas for a character in Ravenswood, as performed at the Lyceum Theatre on 20th September 1890.

Adapted from Walter Scott’s novel The Bride of Lammermoor, the story of Ravenswood is set in Scotland in the reign of Queen Anne (1702–1714). To ensure historical accuracy, the actor-manager Henry Irving employed John Seymour Lucas (1849-1923), a Royal Academician and Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, to design the costumes.
