Undiminished by time, this antique evening gown still casts its seductive spell. An exceptional Edwardian tea-dress made of French chantilly-lace and silk lwith sheer black mesh net overlay, faceted beading and tassel applique. The breathtaking silhouette really sets this dress apart from others of it's time. I love the low-cut plunge bodice with backside draped tassel trains. Making a bold and dramatic fashion statement that could have been worn in Downton Abbey at the end of WWI. This is truly a rare and exceptional quality made piece of wearable art! Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:40 inches Total Length:55 inches This antique French Edwardian garment is in excellent condition with no notable stains, rips or holes. There is a lined boning circling the bodice. The closures are in the back and are quite elaborate with snaps, hook & eye on each layer. There is hand-stitching throughout. Only sign of wear is faint lightening to the black lace from age. I wouldn't be surprised if this creation was by a famous designer, as it has all the hallmarks of a couture piece from this era.
