Condition: Excellent condition! The great benefit of having cotton antique clothing is the usual absence of pesky moth holes, from moths biting through wool. The cotton is nice and clean, sturdy, and without any areas of staining or hole damage. Missing two or three poms, but they're all in great condition! This truly is a great piece for any appropriate china or fashion lady -- just make sure she's nice and big!

**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!** LBS 7/6/16
