1830's Dress with Floral Print

From the seller:

Measures 14" across the shoulders, 26" through the bust, 20" at the waist, full through the hips and length is 52". Sleeves are 22" long from top of shoulder to cuff. Length from top of shoulder to waist seam is 13”. Fabric is soft wool with cotton lining in bodice; has metal hooks and eyes down back. Note the wonderfully detailed sleeves and pleated bodice, so much hand work! No label; all hand sewn of course. Structurally intact with a couple dozen holes in wool scattered about; the ones on the bodice are mostly 1" or smaller; although there are some larger ones on the sleeves; there are a couple larger ones in skirt; as well as a variety of pinholes and 1/8" to 1/4" holes. True colors are tan background with dark brown and dark green print.

From Me:

This seller tends to delete all his pictures right after the auction ends so I only have this one. Still, the dress was too cool to not post.
