An Antique/vintage French Lace And Silk Bodice For Sale

An Antique/vintage French Lace And Silk Bodice

This is the most exquisite antique/ vintage French silk and lace top.
This is the most glorious gossamer very delicate confection.
It has the look of a shawl but under each of the sleeves there's a delightful pale ( ballet pink) silk ribbon bow.There are also silk ribbon bows at the centre front, top of the sleeves and at each side of the front.
The deep lace edging is an old ivory colour and is decorated with garlands of flowers and leaves.The cartouche shaped design in the centre of the garlands has rather lovely swagged ribbons at the base.There is one area - show in the photo's, where it need re stitching , 3 cms long to the silk crepe.
The depth of the lace is approx. 8 cms.The very fine ivory silk crepe has just the very feintest blush of pink - it's quite beautiful.The back would have had a tiny seed pearl button and loop.Both are missing.There are a couple of light spots, if you look very carefully.At first glance they appear to be just the way the light catches the silk crepe.They do not detract from this superb antique top.
The very fine silk lining is shattered in parts.It probably needs snipping out and replacing or not..it would make a lovely and very sheer evening top.
It will fit a UK size 8 or 10.Approx. 61 cms nape to bottom.Approx.43 cms neck to sleeve edge.Approx. 49cms. shoulder to bottom.The length of the back opening is approx. 11cms.The neck circumference is approx. 52 cms.
It weighs just 75 grammes.This really is a beautiful piece of antique French gossamer gorgeousness.
Free Worldwide Postage.
