Two-piece afternoon dress in the color "Cafe au lait", ca. 1890. Origin: America. The fabric is a silk taffeta that has a slight shimmer. The bodice has a gathered black silk satin front panel edged with appliqued satin ruffles. The belt and cuffs are made of the same black silk. The belt has a small decorative buckle. Attached collar made of lace, sewn-on lace on the sleeves. In the skirt continued the black satin applications. The applications imitate the so-called "open robe style" of a dress from the 18th century. Very well preserved. Discreet underarm stains; scattered tiny spots; some hooks and eyes are certainly missing; the bust front panel would need to be sewn on one side; the lace is stained in a few places. Decoration is not included.
