Incredible 1870s Antique Silk Lace Bustle Wedding Dress French Lace Small For Sale
INCREDIBLE 1870s Antique Silk Lace BUSTLE Wedding Dress FRENCH LACE Small
Have not seen anything like this on !! An Incredible 2-piece early Victorian (probably wedding) dress with OODLES of ANTIQUE FRENCH LACE. Probably 1870s. Found at an estate sale with no history available.
Appears to be silk fabric, pale green. Fabric, actually, in good condition, but lots of stains. Lace in great condition, though yellowed.
This is not something that should be worn. It should be displayed or used for the lace or study.
Basic seams appear to be machine sewed, but all other sewing is exquisitely hand done. This includes all lace, interior lining, pleating, etc., etc.
The jacket/bodice is exquisitely sewn with a silk lining and hand sewn silk cording at sleeves seams. Has boning at several seams and in good condition. Does have underarm stains. See pictures.
Buttons are totally exquisite (hand crocheted) and all 13 are intact on bodice.
Skirt has cotton "ties" to hold up the bustle apparatus (not included), and is lined with a lovely lower hemline linen petticoat with lace. (see picture)
I would imagine that this dress was purchased by a wealthy family for someone's wedding. The lace is INCREDIBLE. And the workmanship is quite fine.
This was meant for a very short person, as measurement from shoulder to hem front with bodice and skirt in alignment is 54 inches.
Shoulders measurement across is very tiny at 12 inches. Bust could be 36-37 inches. Sleeves are 18.5 inches from shoulder to below elbow.
I am trying to show as much as I can in pictures; But if you need more, please email for additional. I am happy to send as many pictures as you may require.
