1900 Vintage Edwardian Wool Challis Paisley Renaissance Trained Dress. This is an extraordinary garment dating to around year 1900 with incredible history that is heavily detailed and shown in photos.This dress is very fragile. The fabric and material of this dress is 120 to 150 years old. There are minimal flaws consistent with age but they're very light including: small tears inside (dress is nicely lined so can't tell unless wearing), outside and near bottom of dress, discoloration, visible nicely done repairs, snaps that struggle to fasten, inner waist belt with no ties & there could be a few other minor details. This would be a great museum piece, design resource or addition to your closet if you're extremely careful with her and is a once in a lifetime find. There's currently another similar garment dating of the same era in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Please see photos and carefully review measurements. Chest: 38 bust (19 across). Sleeve length: 16 (from under the arm to cuff).Shoulder to shoulder: 20 across.
