The perfect Romantic Era dress accessories!

From the seller:

Rare down feather filled puffy sleeve inserts for Regency period gowns, dating to the first quarter of the 19thc. Roller printed cotton covering, with fine hand stitched pleating at the shoulders, lined in cotton and filled with either swan or goose down. In excellent antique condition the exterior cotton is very faded, with age related even yellowing, no holes. Very rare to find, found in estate of seacoast of New England. I have some other early items listed this week from this same estate.

From me:

I honestly haven't seen these before outside of a picture in a book. To get to see this many angles is just amazing to me.
