Cypriot Costumes in the National Historical Museum
The World of Cyprus at the Dawn of the 20th Century

The publication was prepared on the occasion of the exhibition entitled “The World of Cyprus at the Dawn of the Twentieth Century”, jointly organised by the National Historical Museum and the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation (November 1999 – January 2000). Included in the volume are texts on the political history of Cyprus in the early twentieth century, the Cypriot Exhibition of 1901, Cypriot costumes at the turn of the nineteenth century, as well as a detailed presentation of the costumes and single dress items exhibited. This unique collection was donated to the Historical and Ethnological Society of Greece by the Patriotic Association of Cypriots in Athens immediately after the “Cypriot Exhibition and Market” organised in Athens at the Zappeion Hall.
