A Sheer Embroidered Day Dress with Low Neckline c.1910

  • Sale
  • Regular price $780.00

    Details:
Tax included.


A rare example of a romantic crepe-de-chine midi dress circa 1910, with hand embroidery over the bodice and skirt. Dresses from the early 20th century are elegant and flattering to the female form, and this one is a show-stopper.

The fabric is of the finest quality and the embroidery has been beautifully done, including rows of coloured flowers and white spots, and a pink and white blanket stitch along the scalloped edges of the dress and neckline. The v-neckline can be either revealing or modest, with a shepherd’s hook clasp to close it closer to the neck. The skirt hangs with three beautiful layers. The dress undoes at the waist and neck, and is fixed in place with a series of shepherd’s hooks and press-studs.  Stunning features of the dress are the scalloped edges and the decorative piping. The dress is light and airy, and feels almost weightless when worn.

SIZE:
Waist:  62 cm
Bust: 82 cm
Hips: 75 cm
Length (neck to hem): 122

CONDITION:
The dress is overall in excellent condition as it is over one hundred years old. There are some minor tears near the waist, and old repairs in black and red thread. These are very minor and do not affect the value of the dress.

I’ve never been a fan of vintage / second hand shopping until I walked into Greystones Antiques. The products are in immaculate condition and all so beautiful - I went to pick up one chair but honestly I was overwhelmed with how much I wanted to buy (and left with much more than I expected to)!!!

Amazing and friendly service. I purchased a 1930's Vanity Dressing Table and Mirror. The delivery was easy and this piece is exactly what I was looking for. It's in amazing condition and it was a very fair price!
