Antique Irish Crochet & Mixed Lace Silk Lingerie Blouse

 

PRICE:  $550


This is a very gorgeous original Irish Crocheted blouse dating from 1905; a romantic period when lingerie was more elaborate than street fashion.  Very detailed lace throughout this piece, so much so that we don't know where to begin.  Hand embroidered ivory China silk, Irish lace, Alencon at the back with the embroidered net lace with tatting at the sleeve edges.  A beautiful cascade of lace fruit with vine assembled at the front covering the hook and eye closures underneath.  Ahhh, the romanticism of the Belle Epoque, where no detail was spared.

 The entire garment is full of history and in our opinion, Envy worthy.

Condition is near Excellent. Blouse has age darkening here and there along the lace at the back shoulders. Just patina, which makes the piece even more delicious. No breaks or damage to the lace or silk!  Clean, ready to wear or display.

 COLLECTIBILITY RATING OF 122A
