This is a wonderful pair of antique French doublet hose that date from the early 1900s. They came from a theatre company that operated in the late 1800s to the early 1900s. They really are so delicieux and would be wonderful for a costume ball of the Venice carnival! Made of rich wine silk velvet they have luscious oyster silk inserts on the side of the leg and the passementerie is simply stunning. The passementerie trim runs down the outer side of each leg and is an intricate display of gold wirework coils and scrolls similar to that found on religious vestments. Each side of the slit that carries the oyster silk the trim is made up of a line of bronze wire overlaid with serpentine coils and then a wider border of scrolls and curls. This stunning trim has taken on a soft old bronze gold with the passage of time. Each knee fastens with a gilt buckle, the waistband and fly are buttoned. One button is missing but could easily be replaced. The inners are lined with soft silky cotton. The hose measure: Waist 28" Hips 40" Length from waist to buckle at leg 29" The velvet pile is gently rubbed at the waist and bottom hem by the buckle commensurate with age but the hose are solid and strong with no holes or tears. A stunning period costume piece full of regal faded grandeur. They should finish at the knee but Mdemoiselle P who was my model was a little short!!!
