Fabulous Edwardian Embroidered Top

From the seller:

Ladies wool top with embroidery dating to the late 19thc. Pretty machine lace neckline and high collar repeated on the elongated cuffs. Graphic hand embroidery. Back hook and eye with silk liner with stays and label on petersham. In very good antique condition.

Sleeves measure 22", chest 32", and length 21."

From Me:

Early 20th c and I'd wear something like this now in the early 21st c to work! It's lovely and has sort of that arts and crafts look to it in the embroidery.
