We rate this piece as one of our most beautiful finds in recent years, when it comes to Lace children’s garments!!
This Angelic C1890 Baby Gown is a simply angelic.
The Fabric is Very Soft White Linen.
We are pleased to note that the Bodice and deep hemline are accented with HAND wrought White work embroidery.
We can only just imagine the number of HOURS this gown painstakingly was crafted in a labor of Love!!!
The neckline and sleeve cuffs are also embellished with a fine trim of hand crafted needle lace.
The closure at the back is completed with two “Petite” Creamy White Antique buttons.
Another highlight is the stitched tucks at the hemline and the back of the bodice.
Condition is Very Good, we note one very small tear (see photo) and a few none apparent pinholes; a well-presented Christening gown.
Could definitely be worn, as it is a sturdy piece.
