ENGLISH & FRENCH ANTIQUE TEXTILES

   

A BEAUTIFUL LENGTH OF GOLD METALLIC EMBROIDERY ON NET. POSSIBLY A FLOUNCE. FRENCH 1810-1840

This lovely length was most certainly from a gown dating to the early 19th century. It is gold metallic embroidery on net.

Similar metallic embroidery was first seen around 1810 on the dresses of the Empress Josephine (see illustrations from book about her clothing). This length is similar.

However, it could also be a little later and in both cases would have been Court or evening dress.

The condition is excellent. The gold much brighter than shown in the photos.

Measurements: Length ca..78" X ca..12"

Price: SOLD
