Lovely 1890's Yellow Bodice
From the seller:
A beautiful 1890’s yellow silk bodice that has recently been de-accessioned from a museum collection. The bodice has an attached over vest that is made of light yellow silk chiffon. The chiffon fabric has a small white flower print. The bodice has a high neck collar made of yellow velvet. The under bust area and waist are trimmed with yellow velvet. The center back has long yellow velvet streamers. The bodice is partly lined with yellow silk and has a front hook and eye closure. It is in very good condition. There is no underarm discoloration. There is some light soiling on the high neck collar, a tiny split in the silk chiffon fabric and some minor fraying on the silk lining. Bust 32 Waist 24. Antique clothing is for display/collecting and should not be worn.
This is so perfect for an Easter bodice! Lots of little details in this one - but very much from the mid 1890's.
