Click image for detail

Glorious French Bodice, made of divine Silk Brocade with beautifully embroidered florals including blooming Roses, this is such a delightful piece to add to your period costume collection! From Lille, France, the sleeves are edged in ruffled French net lace, an abundance of ribbons, and set off with small pearl buttons.  

The ribbons are a later addition, but the work is just gorgeous, used in a theater as a costume. Hand sewn boning on the front, this is a tiny waisted bodice, there are miniscule openings in the back for "cinching" together, the original lacing is gone after all these years, a narrow ribbon has been substituted.  Display on a decorative hanger or your antique mannequin.

Bodice measures about 31" around neckline {there is a tie that can be gathered more, or less} 12~1/2" long to the point in the front, 10~1/2" long in back,  sleeves measure 11" to end of lace.  Gorgeous and quite a rare treat for the collector!
