The most beautiful oyster coloured silk dress, I think this was a theatrical piece and dates to the 1900's. The bodice comes under the best very much in Regency style and then the fabric of the skirt falls away in folds and is trimmed at the very edges with fringing. The inside of the bodice is wired and trimmed with lace. There is the most beautiful pastel embroidery on the sleeves and the main body of the dress itself. Unfortunately there is some damage to the back of the piece which I have photographed where the silk has split, but this does get lost in the folds somewhat. The piece is for display only and would look wonderful hung in a boudoir on a French Armoire.
