Antique Victorian Black Ivory Lace Ladies Bodice Prestine

 
 
This is an antique Ladies bodice from the Edwardian or Victorian era. Dates anywhere from the 1890's to 1910. It is black patterned fabric with black lace around the neck over an ivory silk? fabric with a pretty light blue trim. The same patterned lace continues on the lovely detail of the cuffs of the sleeves. The bodice has boning inside and a long black silk bow at the back of the waist. Gorgeous pleated cuffs. There are black metal hooks inside to close, all are likely original.
This is in absolute prestine condition! It's quite remarkable how well this held up being over 100 years old. Whoever owned this really treasured it and took great care storing it. There are no holes at all in the black silk and no signs of the fabric fraying. The only area I found a couple of split areas was around the collar area of the ivory fabric, though it's minor and hidden by the black lace overlay.
The other great thing about this bodice is that it is not teeny tiny, it's a size that an actual modern size woman could wear today! The bust area measures approx 36" around and the waist 29" around.

This would be perfect for a gothic modeling shoot or to add to your Victorian collection.

The photos don't begin to do this justice - email me if you would like to see more.
