Antique 19th Century French Lace Silk Jacket for Project. just gorgeous, an elegant and refined example of lovely floral and foliate elements suspended in the airy workmanship of an expert lacemaker over a century ago. French made in the 1800's, this exquisite confection has stunning hand made tape lace edged in the finest, most delicate lace trim. The front is embellished with two silk tassels. This is a tiny, feminine jacket, shorter to account for the bustles fashionable ladies wore in the mid to late 1800's.

One of the whisper thin silk sleeves has torn, {by me when unpacking-ugh} the lace parts are exceptional. If you sew, you can replace the silk sleeves, or if you want to display this on a mannequin instead of wear this confection, this may not matter. I have marked it down to half of my cost, to pass it along to someone who will love it.  Discolored with age, not laundered, I know you collectors prefer to launder yourself. Gorgeous to display in your boudoir, a stunning and very collectible early jacket.

  • Measures 15-1/2" long in the back, 22" long sleeves, 16" from underarm to underarm.
