Material: Silk satin outer bodice, cotton lining inside

Decade: 1850s or very early 1870s (off shoulder seams is an early characteristic while the notched peplum was a later fashion)

Brand/Tags: no tags

Condition: Fair - this would be for study or display only - the satin does not seem to be shattering anywhere but the trim is fully deteriorating with the wide trim being threadbare on edges and fringed trim is falling apart due to the thread creating it's shape deterioration. There are a few holes in the main silk satin body - one being noted on the front left and one being on one of the bell sleeves near the bottom. There is extensive staining to the inner bodice from antique perspiration. The hooks and eyes are pulled from some spots as they are attached to a thinner silk trim that is starting to shatter. This has not been cleaned but has no odors.

Measurements: (taken flat and doubled when needed) - I took these as best I could without straining the fabric so they may not be presice

Bust - 34"

Waist - 23"

Shoulders - 16"

Sleeve inseam - 15'

Sleeve outer measurement - 20"

Cuff - 23"

Back length - 20. 5"
