MADAME CLAPHAM Ball Gown, Hull, ca. 1908

MADAME CLAPHAM Ball Gown, Hull, ca. 1908

antique madame clapham ball gown 1908 1 antique madame clapham ball gown 1908

Very rare antique dress of the court dressmaker Madame Clapham, ca. 1908. Mrs Emily Clapham opened a dress making salon in Hull in 1887, which by the 1890's was highly regarded and attracted world wide patronage for the quality and style of ladies' fashion that she produced. Unusually as a local business woman with no premises outside the city, she was able to maintain a high profile clientele and compete with the London fashion houses of the period. The salon continued to trade until Madame Clapham died in 1952, when the salon was taken on by her niece until 1967. Madame Clapham added the title of Court dressmaker to her Salon's labels in 1901 as a mark of her highly regarded reputation.

The antique ball gown is a one-piece. The top is beautifully embroidered - on the front as well as on the back. Free chest neckline with light tulle applications. Black net tulle sleeves decorated with rhinestones. Wide belt in velvet. The skirt falls bell-shaped. Circumferential wide band of silver threads and sequin ornaments. In the front a big flower is embroidered. Good condition. The top is worn inside. Some pearls/sequins are surely missing in the embroideries. The silk of the skirt has tears. To stabilize the silk the backside of the skirt was backed. This makes the dress suitable for draping and displaying again. The decoration is not included.
