Rare Antique Edwardian Handmade Black Battenberg Lace Skirt Museum Deaccession For Sale
Rare Antique Victorian Handmade Black Battenberg Lace Skirt Museum Deaccession
A stunning, antique Edwardian, handmade black Battenberg lace trained skirt, circa 1905. This rare treasure is a Coney Island Museum, NY, deaccession, and was acquired at a recent sale. As a result, it is in pristine condition. The swag style, the altered height front to back, the various examples of Battenberg lace were all created on this gorgeous skirt. It features a beautiful scroll motif integrated into a silky net, that has a wonderful silky drape and hand. The skirt is photographed over a white antique petticoat, but it is sheer. It is completely lined in a sheer silk organza, that has three rows of ruffles at the bottom. The elastic waist line measures 30", so there is some give. The length in front is 44", tpering to a 57" length at the back, as it is trained. This would make a magnificent statement at a formal affair, or a fabulous Steampunk wedding skirt, topped with an edgy bustier. Don't miss this rare opportunity to own this exquisite piece!
