Edwardian Floral Bodice

From the seller:

Up for auction is this museum de-accessioned antique Victorian floral warp print beaded dress bodice. This bodice is trimmed with black applique beading and velvet. Faceted black buttons at waist. Very Good Condition! Don't miss this!


Measurements are taken in
inches while item is laid flat

Length: 16.00 inches
Chest: 16.00 inches
Waist: 12.50 inches

From Me:

This one is Edwardian, not Victorian. The sleeves (sheer on bottom, fitted at the top), the bodice front (see that pleating?), and details (those straps over the shoulders are so late 1900's/early 1910's) are all very common in the late 1900's.
