Edwardian Dress with Metallic Lace Cuffs

From the seller:

1, 1900 Gibson Girl Black Silk with Velvet print dress: It is that time of year again when I start to go on trips and buy, so I need to clean out some space before I travel. This is a very nice day time ensemble from the early 1900's. It is made in the Gibson girl style that was so popular during this decade. The skirt has a waist of 29, a length in front of 40 inches and 45 inches in back. The bodice has a bust of 36, a waist of 30 and shoulders that measure 14. This garment is just for study or could be used for display if you used black slips under it. The fabric is brittle and riddled with holes and repairs. The bodice lining is damaged and the lace has some damage as well. The gold bullion is in fair condition with age related patina. The lining of the gold bullion has shattered. It was original ivory silk. The dress is beautiful still, but these photos make it look in far better condition than it is. It would really be best for design inspiration, it is way to fragile to wear. This came out of a trunk in an old barn where it had been stored for almost 60 years and definitely has that old smell. The bidding will start at $0.99 with no reserve. We will be listing some fabulous things this week so check out our other listings.
