Photo of Gown being worn by Original owner!





From the seller:

This dress goes beyond beautiful. Listed in a picture with the original owner wearing the dress. Turn of the century ivory silk and lace tea gown. Beautiful real pearl and glass bead embellishment on the draped hem. This piece is a bespoke piece with the foundation made into the piece negating the need for the tightly fitted undergarments required for these pieces. The waist measures 21" and bust is 26" so I am not selling this as a wearable piece but rather an occassional display piece or to add to your collection of antique gowns. My mannequin is not small enough for the dress so I did not get a good pictuer of the back of the dress. Because of the delicate condition I did not want to strain the material so have it pinned to give an idea of how the back looks. Don't let this one get away. These pieces are getting hard to find and other than wear that should be associated with a garment of this age, there are no stains, tears, holes, rips or other damage we could find.

From Me:

I love the pearl detail!
