A stunning antique Victorian mourning blouse.
Made from structured black silk, it has heavily embellished cuffs and hem, decorated with extensive jet beading and black lace.
It is wide at the hip to allow room for the full skirts.
It has a short mandarin style collar with a hook and eye fastening down the front.
It does fasten all the way down but our mannequins are all too large to show.
A particularly nice example.
It spent some time at the Nottingham textiles museum and comes with its original donation paperwork.
Good condition overall, there are some loose areas of the lace trim which will need tightening and there are two holes both underarm, one is relatively small the other a couple of inch, see photos.
It has not been cleaned by us, specialist cleaning only, it has a faint smell of spice, yes you read that right, spice.
22" length (shoulder to hem)
13.5" shoulder to shoulder
