45.00

Incredible late 1800s hand embroidered silk dress appliqu̩/ application which I imagine graced the bodice of a robe.

The main structure is a shell pink silk embellished with pink velvet chenille trim. The silk is then further embellished by tiny handmade lace and a woven gold metal and silk cord.

A very special piece of costume history which was found inside a steamer trunk of the most incredible cache of 1800s silk including a Callot Soeurs dress. This was one of the handmade silk remnants that was folded amongst the 1800s robes.

The appliqu̩ has a length of 38cm & 6.3cm at the widest point.

The main structure is in fair antique condition, there are some tears to the very fine lace and some of the metallic cord has come undone but can be restored.

For collectors.
