Amazing antique mid 1800s dress. Black and rust moire silk with rust silk velvet trim. Wonderful condition, the silk is amazing and still strong all over. The only issue I see is the arm pit damage. The rest of the dress is amazing. I do think this is something missing from the bust area. I do not know if this dress is complete. Nice early fashion construction example. For a petite woman or older child. Possible mourning wear example. It measures 60 long, approx. All items I sell are pieces that I have found to be unique, cool, adorable, beautiful, and eye catching. They range from vintage textiles of material, linens and clothing to antique dolls and items of childhood interest to the best vintage holiday collectibles. Be sure to add me to your favorites if these items are of interest to you as well, for I will be continuously listing new items as I find them. Any discrepancies such as cracks, crazing, holes, marks or smells, will be listed in the item description. Please note these items are only in my possession for a short period of time and there may be some discrepancies I do not notice such as a slight musky scent of a piece of vintage clothing. All items were pre-loved and long forgotten stored in basement or attic. Thank you, I greatly appreciate your business! Peace and Love, Amanda Marie (Mandare23).
