Great old needle lace with faux pearls; a lace panel plus old dress bodice with the matching lace sleeves. Probably originally part of a wedding ensemble, and rescued by a lace collector, this features magnificent lace of flowers in a woven design on the netting with faux pearls hand sewn on the flower designs. Other flowers are accented with silk cording. The panel measures 11 & 1/2" across and is one yard long. The yardage is in good condition, I don't see any holes at least of any consequence, there is one place on the netting area with a slight blue color. As to the bodice, the body part if all netting, with the lower half of the sleeves including the cuffs the matching lace, again in good condition. Not sure what to measure here, the bodice is about 34" maximum size at the bust, with snaps on the side, each sleeve is 17" long from the shoulder seam, with the lace part of the sleeve 7 & 1/2" tall not counting the cuff. We have not washing or dry cleaned these at all, no aromas. Great lace for the collector, vintage clothing lover or doll collector.
