Ornate 1890's Bodice

From the seller:

A lavish 1890’s gray embroidered cashmere wool jacket. The label reads Besten & Langen, Louisville. The jacket is extensively adored with light gray and white stylized embroidery. The jacket has a front insert of Irish lace that is trimmed with blue velvet ribbon and long front tassels. The Irish lace is laid over a white chiffon base. The collar, shoulders and sleeves have inserts of Irish lace. The sleeves cuffs are made of Irish lace and trimmed with blue velvet. The jacket is also trimmed with light gray silk balls, It is lined with white silk. The jacket is in good condition. There are a few scattered moth nips, a couple of missing balls and a small section of missing trim on the inside neckline. A beautiful work of art. Bust 34 Loose fitting waist 34.

From Me:

This looks late 1890's and probably for spring.
