1880s Silk Satin and Organdy Bustle Gown

About

Very rare, and very near mint. This dress has days and days of hand sewing, lace and bead work involved, all for a simple day dress. It was a different era indeed. All of the textiles on this dress are in phenomenal condition. There is some slight wear to the edges of the satin in places but nothing is dry rot nor stained as we can see. A real wow bustle dress in very good condition, it has outlived our grandmothers and we are sure it is going to out last us all.
