PRETTY CREAM MUSLIN EMBROIDERED EMPIRE PERIOD DRESS. ENGLISH 1805-1810

This is a really sweet cream muslin and a nice early example. It dates to the very beginning of the 19th century.

It is of simple style with high waist, dipping to a lower back waist. It is hand embroidered all over with little "bobbles".

There is a tie at the neck, and a rather fragile tie at the waist.

A very charming dress -not in perfect condition but it displays well.

There are a few slight minor holes here and there and general signs that this was a favorite dress! However, it is desirable to have such an early dress and in a style so typical of this era.

General condition - good. Lovely hand worked muslin.

Measurements: Length 51" at the front - 58" at the back (slight train) Across shoulders 12".High waist, variable, 29" all round

Price: USD $850.-
