HEADPIECE with VEIL
1920s - 1930s
This is a vintage wedding gown, complete with the headpiece and attached veil. The fabric for the gown and headpiece is satin. The gown is adorned with a nettingat the neckline. The waist seam dips to a "V" on the front and back. The closure consists of 20 satin covered buttons, with the 21st at the neckhaving a snap closure hidden by the button. The sleeves have a slight puff at the shoulder and come down to a "V" on the top of the hand. There are 4 satin covered buttons at the bottom with a snap closure on each.
This is a vintage gown, as a vintage gown there are tiny holes scattered throughout, with the largest being about the size of the eraser on a pencil. There is also scattered brownish marks. I have not attempted to clean this gem and will leave that up to the new owner.
As for the headpiece, it is also made of the same satin. Each side is adorned with artificial lillies-of-the-valley and ribbons. The netting is attached and in good shape. I can not find any holes in it. There seem to be two layers.
Measurements are as follows and are taken with the gown flat:
Bust is approximately 16 inches
Waist is approximately 15 inches
Sleeves are approximately 24 inches from the top shoulder to the bottom of the "V"
Front of gown from the bottom of the "V" to the hem is approximately 35 inches
