Unusual to find embroidered pieces of dress silk. This gown must have been magnificent.
palest lemon silk finely embroidered with a butterfly flitting amongst meandering leaf sprays with a variety of small flowers, including mauve solanium, interspersed with three larger sprays of flowers, all different, 20 x 46 in; 60 x 1.17 cm drop
Very good. Fresh and crisp. Bottom right has a few minor marks and a water stain. Ask for photo if not clear. The odd spot elsewhere.
