Huge Lot of Turn of the Century Blouses

From the seller:

Hello! Thanks for taking the time to view our auction!


Up for your bidding consideration is a fabulous lot of *8* clothing items from the late 1800's to early 1900's! This lot includes 4 shirts, 1 vest, two skirts and one ornate robe. All items are worn, many are stained and all need some TLC - but hey, they're over 100 years old, give them a break! :)

The ornate robe has a large amount of discoloration but the trim,buttons and bright green interior are incredible (please note the photos!)

The shirts have lace breakage, stains, etc. The white shirt is incredibly stiff like starch was used on it.

The skirts have various small holes and stains. The white skirt has had an elastic waist that is not original to it. Both skirts are larger sizes (30" ish waists)

These would be perfect for display, to make patterns from, for plays or for the fabric itself! Measurements are available upon request.


From Me:

It looks like everything really is from the first decade of the 20th Century. Pretty awesome time capsule! The pink robe like garment is a Chinese dress - very lovely.
