If you are looking for a special present for your favorite 24" doll this holiday season, a dress of this antique quality and caliber might just fit the bill. With delicate details like contrast machine stitching and beautiful Victorian lace that subtly accents the collar and cuffs, this dress is a prime example of fine Bebe clothing, produced in France in the 1890s. It is a wonder that this beautiful piece has passed through time without fading or discoloring; so beautiful a shade is difficult to come by on these early pieces. The fine beige velvet sash provides a lovely contrast to the intense color of the dress. We are offering this beautiful bebe outfit as a part of our *Stocking Stuffer* line of dolls, accessories, and costume pieces- delightful trifles under $500, that would make wonderful presents this season for those you love (who love dolls) and your very favorite dolls themselves!
~We are offering this lovely dress on layaway! Take up to three months to pay. If you would like it before the holidays, split the payment in half, and let our staff know that you'd like it before the end of December so shipping arrangements can be made. And this lovely dress ships for free in the US, with shipping credit abroad!~
Length: 13.5" Waist: (about) 16" Shoulder to shoulder: 8" Cuff circumference: 5.5"
Condition: Generally excellent! This dress is in very good condition for its age. Only minor age wear and fading (visible in photos.) One very minor spot at the bottom of the skirt. If you'd like, it could take a careful laundering, but we chose to leave it in its all original condition as we wouldn't want the color to bleed out. The new owner of this beautiful bebe dress will be smitten with it.

**We now ship EVERY SINGLE ONE of our antique costume pieces in archival, museum quality, acid free tissue paper. We store them in an acid free, climate controlled environment, because we want you to get a textile that has been frozen in time. As curators of these antiques, we want them to be as fresh for the next generation of students and enthusiasts as they were for us. This is factored into the price of our merchandise. We hope you can enjoy these rare finds for years to come, and we want to make sure that when they reach you, they are ready for careful love and display if you so chose, or to be stored in a destruction-free paper. Happy shopping!**
