Natural Form Tea Gown!
From the seller:
ANTIQUE VICTORIAN EDWARDIAN TEA LAWN GOWN DRESS
Measurements : Shoulders are approx 15" across, chest is approx 14.5", 14" waist, length from back of neck to bottom is approx. 58", sleeve from under arm to end of sleeve is approx. 18"
Good ESTATE FOUND condition, this beautiful dress can be used for a tea, wedding or just plain any occasion.
Condition: The dress has a small hole in bottom back of dress. I did not try to clean the item will leave that up to you. This dress is sold as it was found in the estate "as is"
All our items are in as found condition. Will need to be cleaned and pressed.
Give the way the shoulders are, that wonderful pleating/seams in the back, and the collar, ect - this is not Edwardian. It's most likely toward the end of the Natural Form era in the early 1880's.
