Turn of the Century Bodice

From the seller:
An exquisite 1890s’ lace and embroidered silk bodice that has a Boston label. The label reads Holland, Boston. The bodice is made of embroidered white silk. The embroidery is done in white silk threads with a large center flower. The neckline and sleeves are made of beautiful Honiton lace. The bertha style solar drapes across the front and upper portions of the sleeves. The sleeves have a wide flared hemline. The lace hooks to the shoulder. The bodice is lined with white silk and has a front hook and eye closure. The outside fabric hooks to the side. The waist is trimmed with a cream silk sash with center back tails. The bodice is in very good condition. There is no underarm discoloration or age marks. There are a few tiny pencil tip size holes in the silk lining that are barely worth a mention. Bust 32 Waist 24.

From Me:
I think this is actually 1900's given the elbow length sleeves and the pigeon front.
