CIVIL War Era Golden Silk Dress W Silk Piping Rosettes And Fringe
CIVIL WAR ERA GOLDEN SILK DRESS W SILK PIPING ROSETTES AND FRINGE. DATING TO THE CIVIL WAR ERA. ONE PIECE IN ITS CONSTRUCTION. SEWN BY BOTH MACHINE AND HAND. IN A GOLDEN MUSTARD YELLOW SILK FAILLE WITH A POLISHED COTTON LINING. BONED ON EITHER SIDE OF THE INTERIOR WITH HOOKS CLOSING THE STOMACH PANEL. STITCH COVERED BUTTONS CLOSE THE FRONT, SEVERAL ARE MISSING. NECKLINE, ARMS, AND WAISTLINE ARE PIPED FULLY AROUND WITH FLAT WHITE SILK PIPED DETAILS, SILK FRINGE AND SILK RIBBON ROSETTES TRIMMING THROUGHOUT THE BODICE WITH THE ROSETTE ON THE REAR BACK HAVING TRIPLE TAILS WITH FRINGE AT THE BOTTOM. I BELIEVE THAT THE ROSETTES ON THE SKIRTING HAD SOMETHING IN THE CENTER FOR DETAIL BUT THE CENTERS OF EACH ARE EMPTY. A FIVE INCH PORTION OF THE SKIRTING CARTRIDGE PLEATING HAS COME FREE AND NEEDS TO BE RE-STITCHED BACK INTO PLACE. EACH UNDERARM HAS SEEN A PATCH MEND AS PICTURED WITH SOME STAINING SEEN UNDERNEATH EACH ARM. THERE ARE SIX SMALL FIST SIZED DARK BROWN WATER STAINS THROUGH THE SKIRTING AS PICTURED, WORST ONES ARE ON THE REAR LOW BACK SKIRTING WITH SCATTERED TINY BROWN SPOT STAINS ALSO SEEN TO THE SKIRT. A THREE INCH SEAM OF THE SKIRTING IS OPEN AND NEEDS TO BE STITCHED CLOSED.
MAKES FOR A WONDERFUL PRESENTATION AND WITH THE SMALL REPAIR WOULD BE WEARABLE, BUT DO NOTE THE SMALL SIZE. Vintage and antique items ARE NOT new items. IF YOU ARE IN GERMANY OR ITALY. Often for proper fit, hang, and wear ability, pieces will need to be altered and/or adding a hook or snap here or there, with a seam closure or strengthening needed.
Vintage clothing is most often worn previously, and if old stock, often has slight imperfections from storage, a hint of color or odor. Measurements are to be assumed that they are at maximum, if you have any questions, please ask PRIOR to the auctions end. These are antique articles, having the age stated. All flaws if any are painstakingly outlined.
