Fabulous Sheer Summer Jacket 1860's







From the seller:

A magnificent 1860-1870 Tambour net lace jacket with hand stitched embroidered appliqu├ęs. The jacket has a wide hip peplum. It is trimmed with pleated white silk and ivory silk fringe. The pagoda style sleeves are opened on the inner seam. The jacket is unlined. The last couple of photos show it displayed over a dress that is being offered in a separate auction, as this is how it would have originally been worn. The jacket is in very good condition. There are no breaks in the lace. There is one tiny age spot on the front bust area. Bust 34 Waist 28. A rare and highly collection jacket.

From Me:

This looks like it would be oh so pretty over some of the florals I posted this morning.
