Edwardian Bodice with Lace

From the seller:

1900 French Silk Bodice Soeurs Kopp: This black silk and lace bodice was made by Soeurs Kopp, Robes & Confections Vevey. The bust is 34 and the waist is 27. The black silk lining is in good condition but the ivory silk lining has shattered. The Petersham is very worn and damaged but the label is in good condition. There is rust on the hooks and eyes and some of them are missing. The netting on the sleeves is torn in places. (see photos). There are a few holes in the silk lining of the sleeves. One row of the metallic braid needs to be sewn back. There are some small holes in the wide strip silk chiffon and the lace at the neck is torn. This piece would be great for study or design. It came from a major museum de accession.

From Me:

I'm guessing around 1904 here.
