Late 1860's Ballgown Bodice

From the seller:

For Sale

A tiny beige silk Antique Regency dress boned bodice all hand sewn with tiny stitches and trimmed with black and beige lace and black beads with cut steel centres-very Austen

The back laces up through tiny hand stitched eyelet holes

Measuring 13"-14" across front

As you can see from the photos the bodice is in pretty good condition but the silk is marked as shown

Ideal for study or to frame

Please see all photos as the form part of the description and do ask if you require more detaild

From Me:

It's very much not Regency. They didn't have sewing machines then. That, and the trim lines are very much 1860's.

1868 Fashion Plate

The white gown in the fashion plate above has a very similar bodice with similar trim lines to the extant one above.
