A Silver Silk Brocade French Court Robe à la Française- Circa 1765/1780



Circa 1765/1780 France-Paris Versailles French court dress in silver flossed, fluted and brocaded silk or brocade. Coat open on a stomacher (sold separatly) and three-quarter sleeves with double rows of pagoda ruffles. Back with box pleats said "à la Watteau". Double facings with falbala in lace made with silver threads on the coat and the visible panel of the skirt. Rich lampas decorated with lace with floral bouquets on striped and fluted pink, parma, green and yellow taffeta background . The stomacker does not belong to this sale. Lining of the bodice in unbleached linen fabric with ties on the back. Very good condition of color and conservation. Dimensions: Equivalent French Size 36/38 Front Height 135 cm Back Height 167 cm Collar 11 cm Shoulders 38 cm Sleeves 38 cm Chest 90 cm Waist 78 cm Circumference of the skirt 302 cm The decorative repertoire of this lampas moves away from the "Bizarre" silks. It shows the transition between the Louis XV style, baroque and fleshy and the geometry of stripes under the reign of Louis XVI. The undisputed wealth of this silver spined and curly lampas probably from a prestigious manufacture, as well as the generous cut of this dress allowing large baskets, probably make this set, collected in Paris, a dress of great pomp of presentation to the Court from the King to Versailles.
