Maria NiforosAntique Lace & Textiles. CIRCA 1800s, a lovely luminous silk childs dress with inner stay, original hardware. The front of the dress has handmade smocking arround the waistline with raised cordonnet around the waist and around the armholes. On the lower half of the dress there is inner chintz?There is extra fabric around the inner part of wasitline so probably this was something that would be altered with age when it became necessary. The dress is in very good condition, a few tiny pinholes, minor and some age related marks.. The item just needs to be cleaned. The silk is strong, I see no wear at all. In very good strong condition. I have added a few pictures of the back and closures and the inner part of the skirt. The item seems darker because of the low lighting at the time when we photographs.
We noticed a few small rust spots where the hardware is, still minor.. Dress is in very good condition. All items we list need to be laundered. Please be aware that at times there may be delays due solely to the Post Office. _gsrx_vers_856 GS 7.0.20 (856).
