This sale is for a most exquisite late Victorian, early Edwardian dress, circa 1900 to 1910. Elegant fine circular patterned silk fabric with lace bodice high collar insert. The dress edges are trimmed in a beautiful wide pink silk. This silk has deteriorated. The dress lower skirt front features a gathered upward sweep with fine pearled and glass beadedbuckle. This reveals a matching pleated silk insert. Early hook and eye up the back. The dress is fully lined in cotton. Being sold as-is....does need some restoration. There is a large underarm tear right side. The left underarm has some age stains. The pink silk is shattering and will need replacement. There are a couple of light age spots lower skirt front and back. The dress is too fragile to wear in it's current state and is best used as display or study. It's still a magnificent example of ladies turn of the century clothing. This is a lovelydress to add to your 1900's Victorian/ Edwardian clothing collection!
