1880 Exquisite White Work Christening Gown-free shipping

This offering is for the most beautifully designed Baptismal/Christening Gown I've seen offered for sale on the internet or at antique shows. It was made by a mother for her infant son, who was baptized soon after birth in 1885. The gown was treasured and used in other baptisms in the family including the following family members: The mother's younger daughter was baptized in this gown. The son matured, married and had three children. All three children were baptized in the gown. The last baptism occurred in 1942 for the granddaughter of the grandfather for whom it was originally made. It was then put away and has been stored since that time with extreme care. The decision was recently made by the family to sell some family heirlooms, including this treasure. The description follows. This white work gown is being displayed on a 24" doll, but certainly would fit a larger chunky baby doll that typically has a chubby, rounded tummy. The gown is 36" long from shoulder to the bottom of the hem. Shoulder to shoulder it measures 7 7/8". The sleeves are 5 ¾" long. The measurement across the chest is 7 ½". There are also ties that are 33" long. The skirt is 26" at the widest portion, above the hemline on the tiny pleated portion. The gown is in excellent condition. It has no worn areas, stains, rips, tears, mends, repairs or mal odors. The condition is, in a word, immaculate. This gown has an amazing design and attention to detail. Please see all the photos as part of the description. The amazing antique gown would be appropriate for a larger German or French doll that has a chunky body. Please contact me with any questions you may have. Thank you for your visit and for taking time to learn more about this offering and to view the photos. U.S.A. Shipping by USPS insured Priority Mail is all inclusive with your purchase. INTERNATIONAL customers, please contact me for your choices for shipping and fees specific for your country.
