1890's Wedding Gown







From the seller:

A striking 1893 ivory silk wedding dress that was worn by Andora Bucher on October 5, 1893 when she married George F. Spang SR. This is according to the note that came with the dress. The note also states that the wedding took place in her mother’s home at 145 S. 12th Street, Reading PA. The fabric has a thin light tan stripe. The bodice has large leg of mutton style sleeves and a wide Bertha style collar that extends over the top of the sleeves. The bodice has a high neck collar. The sleeve cuffs and waist are decorated with tan satin ribbon. The bodice is lined with cotton and has a front hook and eye closure. The skirt is lined with cotton. The dress is in very good condition. There are no holes or splits in the fabric. There are circles of light underarm discoloration that does not show when displayed. A very pretty display dress. Bust 34 Waist 22 Skirt length 41.

From Me:

The 1890's. When "go big or go home!" takes on a whole new meaning... Gotta love it!
