Lovely Classic Antique Doll Dress.
This just what ANY doll needs. French, German, Cloth, China and Paper Mache - ladies and children would all feel very comfortable in this sweet ensemble. Sort of blue - sort of green with teal and grey overtones. Simple and elegant. Made from wool challis and dating from the last quarter of the 19th c. The dress is in remarkable condition with only the black ribbon at the cuffs needing antique replacements as they were melting off and a few small age spots on the wool. The straw bonnet might be antique or vintage. It looks like the exquisite millinery is older than the hat, but I cannot be sure. The original ribbon had long since melted off and has been replaced with a silk one that matches the wool of the dress perfectly, It is pure silk. Shoulder to hem - 15". Shoulder seam to seam - 5". Waist - 4 1/2". Inside circumference of the hat where it would sit on the head is 10"
