From the seller:
This fancy blouse was in a local estate, packed away in a trunk in the attic for nearly a century. Please see my other items for more things from that trunk. As the pictures show, this took a while to create. I'd guess it's age as 1880's. If that's wrong, please let me know. There are some tears in the lacy areas, in the collar and where it attaches to the blouse. Lots of tiny hooks around there. Shoulders are 15 inches across. Made for a small and or young lady.
This lovely bodice is clearly from the late Edwardian period. It could also use a good soak to clean it.
