This is an exquisite antique french fashion poupee two piece promenade suit dress. This is a genuine antique dress for a french or german fashion doll of approximately 22 to 25 inches in height. The body it is shown on is a portrait Jumeau fashion body that is 19.5 inches tall. The top is made of a burgundy silk velvet with lace collar and silk ruched bodice. It is fully lined in polished cotton and the same silk faille from the skirt. The skirt is silk faille lined in polished brown cotton with an extended train. It is in wonderful condition for it's age and is quite sturdy. The ruched silk on the bodice has splitting; the velvet is sturdy but has loss to the nap. The lace has a couple of breaks. There is wear to the bottom edge of the skirt and a couple small spots elsewhere. The lining is in good condition throughout and it is sturdy and really a superb example of a genuine original french fashion dress. The skirt is 11 inches long in front and 19 inches long in back with train. The waist is 5 inches across the front. The jacket is 7 inches across the shoulders, sleeves are 7 inches long and waist is about 6 inches across the front. Some old snaps were added to the jacket at some point and they could be removed to make it a bit wider if desired. This is from my personal collection, I've been holding onto it for years not willing to let go of it because it is so great, but I have decided to part with it. Don't miss out on this opportunity, this is a rare find.
