VICTORIAN 19TH C ENGLISH SILK SATIN DRESS W RIBBON + METALLIC LACE TRIMS. DATING TO THE VICTORIAN 19TH CENTURY. TWO PIECE IN CONSTRUCTION AND I BELIEVE THAT THIS SET JUDGING BY THE STYLING IS ENGLISH VICTORIAN IN ORIGIN, THERE ARE NO LABELS ON THE PETERSHAM. FASHIONED OF A BLUE TEAL SILK. THE BODICE IS FULLY BONED AND IS LINED IN COTTON WITH AN UNMARKED PETERSHAM. ALTERNATING HOOK AND EYES CLOSE THE FRONT WITH BLACK SPANISH LACE TRIMMING THE FRONT CLOSURE WITH METALLIC GOLD BRAIDING ENCIRCLING THE SQUARE CUT NECKLINE IN THE REAR AND FALLING DOWN EACH SIDE OF THE FRONT. MATCHING BRAIDING TRIMS THE PUFFS ATOP THE SLEEVES AS WELL AS THE SPANISH LACE TRIMMING THE BOTTOM CUFF. THE SKIRTING IS IN CARTRIDGE PLEATING FULLY AROUND. THE INTERIOR IS LINED IN A BLUE COTTON. A SILK RIBBON RUNS FULLY AROUND THE SKIRT WITH MATCHING GOLD BRAIDING AND WOVEN SILK RIBBONS ARE HAND KNOTTED AND DANGLE FULLY AROUND. THE SKIRT CLOSES WITH A HOOK AND EYE CLOSURE AT THE SIDE. NOTE THE IMAGES, THERE IS HEAVY SPOT STAINING ABOVE THE RIBBON ON THE SILK FULLY AROUND. THE WAISTBAND OF THE SKIRT HAS SEEN A FRACTURE AND IS IN NEED OF A REPAIR, IT APPEARS THAT IT HAD BEEN STRESSED AND TORN WHEN WORN. BROWN DISCOLORATION IS UNDER THE ARMS WITH SOME BROWN SOILING SEEN ON EACH SIDE OF THE REAR BODICE AND I ALMOST SUSPECT THAT IT IS TARNISHED FROM THE METALLIC GOLD BRAID IN THE WAY THAT IT WAS STORED. STRONG AND WEARABLE, A BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE VICTORIAN DRESS. SLEEVE LENGTH FROM TOP SHOULDER TO BOTTOM: 22. CENTER REAR LENGTH: 17. Our business name is ANTIQUE WARDROBE.

A mistake can happen… Vintage and antique items ARE NOT new items. Often for proper fit, hang, and wear ability, pieces will need to be altered and/or adding a hook or snap here or there, with a seam closure or strengthening needed. Vintage clothing is most often worn previously, and if old stock, often has slight imperfections from storage, a hint of color or odor. These are antique articles, having the age stated.. All flaws if any are painstakingly outlined. _gsrx_vers_1436 GS 9.0.5 (1436). This item is in the category “Clothing, Shoes & Accessories\Specialty\Vintage\Women’s Vintage Clothing\Dresses”.
