Beautiful. For someone who longs for a gown, but would not be able to accomodate one. Why not have a length of dress silk that could be displayed or framed.
The ivory silk taffeta brocaded with a self coloured pattern of diagonal inter connecting large medallions containing three different polychrome flowers, and smaller medallions with small pansies, the background with small five petalled flowers amongst dots.
3 ft x 19 1/2 in; 92 x 50 cm selvedge to selvedge.
Very very good condition. You can see this length was a skirt length because there are slight folds at the top. On the hem is lovely piece of original fine linen tape. This would look wonderful mounted on a stretcher and hung on the wall.
Price: £400 | $550 | €470
