1890's Black Lace Dress

From the seller:

An elegant 1890’s two piece black Chantilly lace evening dress. The bodice has a ruffled lace attachment that extends around the neckline and to the edge of the bodice hemline. The lace has a scalloped edging. The sleeves are trimmed at the top with a wide flounce of lace and the sleeve cuffs are trimmed in the same manner. The bodice is lined with cotton and has a front hook and eye closure. The skirt is designed with two lace tiers. It is lined with cotton. The dress is in very good condition. There is no underarm discoloration. There are three small pea size holes in the lace on the skirt near the waist, one ½ inch break and a few breaks along the edge of the scalloping. A very pretty display dress. Bust 31 Waist 23 Skirt length 40.

From Me:

Does anyone else see this dress and think "evil queen" from a fairy tale movie adaptation? I think it's the neckline.
