Late Victorian Lace Blouse
This was I am sure quite beautiful in its day but it's in need of some help now. Selling it as in for it's gorgeous trims, parts and possibly pattern to someone who can use it.
Under the gorgeous floral (daffodils?) embroidered lace is silk which is disintegrating. It is boned along the waist, and has large puffy sleeves with metalic gold trim as shown.
Please note: I will be out of town until December 16th and should have access to email but may be unable to answer some questions until I return.
This is a turn of the century bodice. My guess is late 1890's but it could easily be early Edwardian.
