From the seller:
An antique French dress in good used condition. This dress is signed by the French maker and was purchased on Fifth Avenue in New York city in 1901. We recently purchases this and other dresses from the "List" family home museum that recently closed in Wheeling Wv. A well respected family that built Wheeling in the 1820's. This french silk chiffon dress has a French metallic lace front and back yoke with a rounded train. Shirred on the shoulders There are three layers to this formal Empire period gown, a silk chiffon top layer in a brown stripe,a satin underdress with a silk layer. On the back train there are glass tassels over the long brown satin bow and a braided satin decoration that matches the shoulder boards on the sleeves. This dress is for parts or to put on a mannequin, but would be a minor job for an experienced seamstress. There are missing snaps on the back, a tear on the shoulder and other small problems. Size is small 4. As is no returns.

From me:

This is a perfect 1910's gown!   I adore the stripes over the gold.  It's beautiful!
