Merry Christmas via the 1890's!













From the seller:

1893's SILK BUSTLE 2-PC VISITING GOWN MUSEUM DE-ACCESSIONED LABEL H. FRAME

A regal 1893 - 1895 stunning green striped floral silk 2 piece bustled gown with large puffed sleeves.

Recently de-accessioned from the Rochester historical museum collection in New York state. The gown still retains it's original Museum ID catalog tags. LABEL ON PETERSHAM READS "H. FRAME 48 WEST 37TH ST. NEW YORK".

The bodice has a attached dark blue velvet lapels or collar that extend into a lovely stand up collar with marabou feather decorations. JUST LOVELY. The cuffs also are adored with the marabou feathers. Lovely inner satin bodice with raised flowers and beadwork.

The back of bodice has a pleated peplum. Large puffed sleeves narrow down to a velvet and lace cuff.

Wide Valennciennes lace adorns the front opening and on sleeve cuffs.

The bodice is lined with pink satin and green satin and with 13 covered whale bone baleen stays and has a front hook and loop closure. The inner pink satin lining has shredded.

The bodice has turned lapels lined with the green striped silk. The bodice has 6 metal buttons with rhinestones and faux pearls.



The skirt has a long back sweep and accented with gatherings of pleats on the back. Inside the skirt are ties that gather the pleats. The skirt closes by hooks and eyes at the back and gathers with pleats in the back for a nice fall. The skirt is lined with a green silk satin lining that is in very good condition. A little cushioned bustle is sewn into the inner back of the shirt below its hook and loop closures. The skirt also has ties inside to arrange the bustle effect.

Condition: The outfit is in fair condition. The bodice pink lining has shredded. No discoloration or underarm stains on the outfit. No repairs but unfortunately has small fabric splits scattered about on the skirt as well as bodice. This can be stabilized. A truly grand display dress/gown or for study.

Okay, so the puffy sleeves give away the 1890's aspect of this dress. It's probably from about 1896 based on the styling such as the jacket and the larger than your head sleeves.

This is probably the perfect dress to go caroling in or to visit family and friends this evening. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
