Beautiful 1890's Wedding Gown








From the seller:

SELLING EXACTLY AS IS AS FOUND ABSOLUTELY ESTATE FRESH THIS VERY BEAUTIFUL, STUNNING, 2 PC AUTHENTIC VICTORIAN ERA WEDDING DRESS. ALONG WITH THE DRESS IS A BRIDAL VEIL, { VERY AS IS, THE VEIL AND ORANGE BLOSSOM {?} HEAD PIECE HAVE SEEN BETTER DAYS } A PAIR OF CREME SILK SHOES , EXTRA WEDDING DRESS FABRIC, AND 2 LONG SILK PIECES, FOUND IN THE SAME BOX, { I THINK THESE WHITE SILK PIECES HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE DRESS.} THIS DRESS WOULD DO WELL IN THE HANDS OF A EXCELLENT DRESSMAKER. THE SKIRT HAS A TRAIN OF SILK WHICH IS EMBROIDERED WITH GORGEOUS PINK ROSES. THE BODY OF THE SKIRT { THE FRONT PART } HAS A BEAUTIFUL PETTICOAT UNDERNEATH W/ LACE TRIM. THE TRAIN IS ABOUT FIVE {5} FEET LONG, FROM THE WAIST { WHICH MEAS ABOUT 24 INCHES } THE SKIRT PART, FRONT, MEAS. ABOUT 44 INCHES FROM THE WAIST . THERE ARE SO MANY FOLDS AND FASTENERS THAT YOU HAVE TO REALLY KNOW YOUR ANTIQUE CLOTHING, TO BUCKLE THIS UP. THE TOP PART OF THIS DRESS HAS A MILLION "BONES " SEWN INTO IT. THE SLEEVES HAVE A THIN GOSSAMER COVERING WHICH IS ALSO SEEN AROUND THE NECKLINE. ALL SNAPS ETC. SEEM TO BE THERE. THERE ARE TWO AREAS OF WEAKNESS ON THE BODICE. I HAVE PUT BLUE TAPE ON THE AREAS THAT HAVE PROBLEMS. { WEAK AREAS ON THE SKIRT ARE ALSO DEFINED BY BLUE TAPE..} THE BODICE BEARS A LABEL WHICH SAYS: MME. E. SCHUMACHER ROBES 45 W 55TH ST NEW YORK' { PERHAPS A RELATIVE OF THE SCHUMAKER FABRIC FAMILY ??} THE PHOTOS DONT DO THESE PIECES JUSTICE. THE ROSE EMBROIDERY IS SO EXQUISITE ON THE TOP AND BOTTOM !!! PLEASE SEE OUR PHOTOS AND EMAIL WITH ANY QUESTIONS.
