antique dress 1908 1 antique dress 1908

Edwardian reception gown in grey silk chiffon over ivory China silk embellished with glass shells. Dressmaker’s label on waistband: „Mme Renfrew Wood * 12 W. 48 St * New York”. The upper bodice and sleeves are ivory lace over cream silk. The standing collar down through the throat is made up of pleated silk tulle set with appliqued lace. Satin covered discs accented the neckline between chiffon and tulle. They are also used at the sleeve hem. The chiffon on the bodice is pleated just above the waistline seam to create a cummerbund effect. The bodice is fully boned. The skirt is gently gathered into the waistline seam. Decorating the reception gown are these amazing iridescent glass shells all hand stitched in place. There are various sizes throughout the gown. They are made to look like fresh water pearls. There is only a couple of missing and a few loose on the gown. The gown closes up the center back with original hooks and eyes. The skirt is slightly longer at the back and trains out behind the dress. The dress is in excellent condition. The China silk lining or under-dressing is showing some shatter. You’ll barely notice. An absolute stunning example of Edwardian fashion, style and grace. The decoration is not included.
