Antique 1890s printed silk set
Extremely rare 1890s geometric printed pure silk matching leg - o - mutton bodice and skirt set. Print resembles moons. Trimmed in ecru lace. Smocked bust and waist on bodice, very full, below the knee skirt, with button at back. Fully lined in a medium weight silk fabric. Extremely wearable museum quality, historical work of art.
This set is a wearable size, which makes it that much rarer, as larger sizes from that time period were hard to find. Pinned to fit model who is a size xs and 5'9.
Bust 34 - 36"
Excellent, presents beautifully, silk is very strong and durable, no rips, tears or stains. Minimal signs of wear, considering the age is over 115+ years old.
