Stunning Edwardian Wedding Gown

From the seller:

Up for your consideration is an antique silk and lace Victorian cream colored wedding gown with Battenburg lace and pearl appliques. This 19th century wedding gown is in very good condition considering it is approximately 120 years old. I'm sure it has been worn many times in the past. Under the lace is a solid silk under skirt overlaid with sheer silk. The bustier has bone stays. It is beige in color with large "faux" pearls. It has hooks all the way down the back. This exquisite wedding dress was purchased in 1998 for $2000.

There has been some repairs to the silk lining of the dress as shown in one of the photos. The silk lining is in delicate condition. There are no rips or snags that I can see on the lace dress. It's really amazing that this dress made it this far with so little repairs. There is some dirt stains on the inside of the train from dragging on the floor. This does not show - it can only be seen if you lift the skirt up. One must remember that wedding dresses were also worn after the wedding. The dress would be worn on special occasions. I displayed the wedding dress for about two months then it was put away in a cedar chest where it remained until now.

I have added all the photos which I thought would best represent the dress and its great condition. This dress would look great on a mannequin in a turn of the century setting and could probably be worn, very delicately, for a short amount of would have to decide for yourself.

Size approximate is 6 to 8 for someone 5'2" to 5'4" tall.

From Me:

It's not Victorian. This is a wonderful example of an Edwardian wedding gown. My guess is from right about 1908.
