1890's Pink Floral Bodice

From the seller:

This auction is for an original Lady's Dress Bodice from the height of the Victorian period. It is made of floral warp-printed silk. The style reminds me of Van Gogh's paintings. It is trimmed out in bright pink satin and features a beautiful lace yoke. The lining is brown cotton and it fastens with original hooks and eyes.

Condition: There is a tiny spot of wear to the inside of the collar and a couple of repairs to the lining. The bodice is beautiful and sturdy enough to display or use as a pattern, as it is a particularly elegant example, excellent for copying.

Measurements are: AS IT IS DISPLAYED HERE: The bust is 32 inches & the waist measures 23 inches.

From Me:
Definitely 1890's. Love the pink bow on the back of the neck.
