Beautiful Antique Victorian Edwardian Ecru Lace Blouse And Skirt Set:
This is a genuinely lovely, either Victorian or Edwardian era, matching skirt and blouse set. They’ve been hanging, together, in my grandmother’s closet since I was a little girl, but I’m afraid I don’t know their history before that. Regrettably, there are some condition issues. I’d place the set at being ‘fair’ overall. There are small rust stains throughout both garments, and two, larger (lighter) discolorations on the skirt. I have not attempted to launder them out. There are also some minor tears in each, but more on the blouse. The waistband of the skirt seems . . . strange. I’m not sure if someone tried to resize it and abandoned it halfway through, or if it’s an odd repair of some kind. The collar of the blouse is detached on one side, and a band of fabric on the back is only partially attached. I’m not certain the band of fabric is original, or if it, too, is some sort of abandoned attempt at resizing or repairs. Neither the blouse nor the skirt close and seal on their own although neither has holes or loose threads indicative of snaps or buttons long gone, so I’m not sure how they fastened in the first place.
Please take the time to look closely at the photos and ask any questions about the condition before offerding. This set will be sold ‘As is’.
Thanks for looking!
