Edwardian Black Lace Bodice

From the seller:

Late 1800's Victorian Blouse

Silk with Black Chantilly Lace

The silk is shredding in the armpit area (this can be seen in the last two pictures)

Some of the lace has tears. Majority of the lace is fine but it looks like the sheer mesh lining under the lace is tearing a bit.

When the blouse is closed, the bottom width is 17 inches.
Sleeve length is 19 inches

Shoulder to Shoulder is 15 inches

Thank you for looking.

From Me:

I'm guessing more late 1900's to early teens on this piece. The waist and sleeves indicate an Edwardian style.
