1860's (?) Undersleeves

From the seller:

Vintage probably 20s brown net dress sleeves. Has a silk cuff with snap closure. The tops have fanciful orange wool embroidered flower with cotton ecru squiggles. Also see our other great items, we gladly combine shipping. Buyer notifies in three days, pays shipping.

Very good vintage condition.

The wrist is 6 1/4" snapped closed, 16.5" long. The top part is 12" (gathered).

From Me:

I doubt these are from the 1920's. The shape looks like hundreds of other undersleeves I've seen for the 1860's. These were worn beneath the flared part of the sleeve and connected to the fitted upper part.
