Product Description

Like something saved from the Titanic, this authentic vintage dress is the epitome of Edwardian grace and style.Certainly dates to right around 1910, give or take a couple years. Beautiful enough to have been a Wedding dress, or to be one today. The incredible amount of detail is hard to convey just with photos and words. It will exceed your expectations in person- especially the glass beaded hanging tassle ornaments. Also features amazing set rhinestone circlets at bodice and at each shoulder. Layers of embroidered netting. Embroidered floral trim at cuffs and along the layered skirt hems (even in hidden areas!).

Closes at gathered waistline with 5 snaps, and on the inside with many more snaps going up and across half of the waist. Very bottom skirt layer is all finely pleated. I'll have to admit I am not entirely confidant I got the front and back right, but fairly certain.

And the Condition is fairly good- amazing for silk of this age! It came to us folded in a box, so was probably properly stored (not on a hangar).  There are no SERIOUS flaws or stains. There are several tiny pin-size holes scattered about here and there, but nothing very noticeable. No shattering of the silk, or tears, and No hole big holes in the lace either! There are a few missing dangling beaded tassles, to be expected. These can be moved around if you wish to have them make sense. There is a threaded part come out at the waistband, where the fabric hangs loose instead of being gathered to match the other side (should be an easy enough fix). As I didn't want the pleats to come out, it has not had a cleaning. The few light marks/ darkened areas should come out fine (such as under the arms, and a couple stains on the bodice), and should be able to be  cleverly concealed...

 

Just an amazing textile! Sold as is, sorry no returns. Happy to asnswer any and all questions...

A NOTE to REMEMBER: A kind word about vintage items in general - they are often One of a Kind and unique items, symbols of more stylish times.... That is what makes them so much fun! But also they should be treated with respect and preservation...cause they are disappearing fast. With that said, Please keep in mind that they are just that - vintage - and unless indicated otherwise, they have an unknown history. Therefore, please don't anticipate that they will look like new unless that is specifically stated. They will likely show previous use, wear, possibly loose threads, small marks, spots etc. that is acceptable to most lovers and buyers of vintage items and are not considered flaws, but character!
I will do my best to point out any flaws and state the condition issues as thoroughly as necessary, you can be sure. Please see my long history of Ebay feedback to rest assured you will be put first!

Please also remember that pictures give a good likeness of an item, but due to differences in monitor displays and lighting variations, etc. they are not exact and some colors may appear more or less accurate. I try to provide the best quality of pictures I can but simply cannot be responsible for these differences in appearance.



PAYMENT AND SHIPPING INFORMATION! PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Paypal is now our only accepted form of payment, but I will accept a good old-fashioned checks (Item will not be sent until it clears, of course). It is the buyers responsibility to request insurance for all items purchased and a wise thing to do. All items are shipped via USPS Priority, Standard, or First Class unless otherwise requested, whatever is the cheapest and quickest for your benefit. Item will be shipped out usually within a couple business days. You need to let me know if you need it quickly. For vintage items or new, returns are not accepted UNLESS there was a major error or misrepresentation somehow on my part (which should NOT happen). It is YOUR responsibility to read all measurements and descriptions and ask for more details if you need. Vintage is sold AS IS and as shown. If you think I am not clear about please something ASK before you buy.
