Dr481, 1840’s Iridescent Silk Blue-green Ball Gownn For Sale
IMPORTANT !!!!!!! PLEASE read entire Description &
Instructions before offerding! FYI, Unless otherwise stated, all measurements are in Inches.
Iridescent Silk Blue-Green Ball Gown: I was not sure what color to call this dress. It has
shades of both blue and green in the iridescent silk fabric. The dress
was created in the 1840's. The bust is
32, the waist is 23, the shoulders are 15.5. The skirt is on a very
dropped waist and measures 37 inches long and it is 130 inches around the
bottom. The dress is lined in a white cotton and it is entirely hand
sewn. The waist is cartridge
pleated. It has its original hooks, but is missing most of the eyes which
were cotton threads. The dress has the following issues. There are heavy underarm stains. See
photo. The ivory on the front bodice is worn through about midway
down. See photo. It does have its original filigree buttons.
I am not sure that the trim is original but it is beautiful. There is wear to the ivory silk collar and
there is discoloration and stains on the skirt. It still makes a nice
display. With soft museum lighting you wouldn't notice the issues so
much. A period shawl would also help to camouflage the flaws. It
would be great for its design elements.
The offerding will start at .99.
