Early Antique Glazed Cotton Calico Dress
This dress would be wonderful on an early china or cloth doll. It's the most wonderful print done in gold, orange, yellow and white. It has a stiff feel to the material and I believe it to be either glazed cotton or silk taffeta, though I've never seen silk taffeta in a print like this.
It's machine sewn, and the stitching looks to be done with a treadle machine. It has no fasteners in the back.
It measures 15" neck to hem, 5" neck to waist, waist is 4" across, shoulder to shoulder is 4" and the sleeves are 3" long.
It's in excellent condition, free of holes or stains and free of fading. The gorgeous colors in this dress are still as vibrant as the day it was made over 100 years ago!
