Handsewn CIVIL WAR ERA Childs Dress Antique c1860 Turkey Red
Handsewn CIVIL WAR ERA Childs Dress Antique c1860 Turkey Red. Classic off the shoulder style. Displays beautifully but not perfect. Sadly, a small part of the print in the turkey red has dissolved, leaving some damage (see photos) Frequently prints like these with black or brown designs show signs of disintegration because the aniline dyes over time oxidize (burn) the cotton fibers. This feels like it has never been laundered. There is no wear other than the print design dissolving. A wonderful, early piece to display.
