Edwardian Black Lace Bodice
From the seller:
Late 1800's Victorian Blouse
Silk with Black Chantilly Lace
The silk is shredding in the armpit area (this can be seen in the last two pictures)
Some of the lace has tears. Majority of the lace is fine but it looks like the sheer mesh lining under the lace is tearing a bit.
When the blouse is closed, the bottom width is 17 inches.
Sleeve length is 19 inches
Shoulder to Shoulder is 15 inches
Thank you for looking.
I'm guessing more late 1900's to early teens on this piece. The waist and sleeves indicate an Edwardian style.
