Black evening dress + Shawl

£65.00

Product description

This is lovely black satin dress from the Victorian-Edwardian period . We believe it is made of Satin, though it was handmade so there is clearly no label. It has a V neck adorned with black sequins on one side and voile on the other. The back is fastened with 8 black hooks. The sleeve are opened and have a black lace trim. At the front there is a large panel of sequins ending with some tassels made of very small pearls. The dress is not lined. The dress comes with a "shawl" made of the same material and has the same details sequins.
There is some damages under the arms, due to the age of the garment. And otherwise stunning antique piece.

Measurement: length: 44", 30" waist.
Shawl 60 " long and 18" wide at one end and pointed at the other.
