This beautiful billowing cream silk beautiful antique English heirloom Silk Christening gown which dates from about 1850-1900 in finest Silk with exquisite silk embroidery detail can be worn with both billowing silk outermost or ribbed silk with beautiful collar detail matching silk cape this heirloom antique is in truly exceptional condition given her grand age with some minor stains that I will continue to treat gently and carefully not to damage the Silk and she has only a single loose seam. A high neckline and cuffed puff sleeves which was the fashion during the early part of the 19th century and fastened with a Single hook and eye and a mother of Pearl button tiny perfect hand embroidered silk thread panels and hand made cut work frills - all very skilled work 

 

This Silk Christening gown has a matching cape and is truly adorable piece of British aristocracy history. I have tried to show all of the stains as shown but they are on the lighter silk - I have carefully washed and steamed the gown and cape so it is ready to wear or collect an absolute beauty, with gorgeous details a truly exceptional high quality items. Each unique item that I sell has its own history and personality and even though some show signs of being pre-loved, that is part of the charm! Any faults are described as accurately as possible but please bear in mind antique and vintage textiles sometimes bear the traces of a previous life. 

 

However I personally ensure that every piece is thoroughly cleaned, pressed and carefully stored so it will always reach you in the best possible condition.
