Antique Victorian Bodice Jacket Brown Velvet And Taffeta Late 1800's Beautiful :
This is a beautifully made, lots of fine detail and bones sewn in, amazing that these type jackets were made by hand. The color is a dark brown velvet trim on collar, shoulders and cuff and lapels, the jacket itself if a lighter chestnut brown I believe to be Taffeta maybe silk, the lining is a bone sewn in to cotton lining. Lots of hooks and eyes not sure if they are all there seem to be. It is really pretty how they did the shoulders and the bottom of the sleeves. There are no tears to the material, no holes fabric is in really good condition considering the age that I am estimating to be end of 1800's. It is in good condition and would make a beautiful display piece. The size is very small, not sure if this was considered to be child or woman's. It measures from underarm to underarm 14 inches and it is 14 inches across the shoulders and total length is 17inches. Please check out the pictures item is sold as is because of age. Thank you for looking
