Crinoline Dress, ca. 1855

Crinoline Dress, ca. 1855

antique crinoline dress 1855 1 antique crinoline dress 1855

Very beautiful dress from the early days of the crinolines, ca. 1855 The wire crinoline is invented and replaces the many petticoats from the Biedermeier period. This "round dress" tolerates a larger crinoline. Nevertheless, the antique dress still runs out in a small train. The one-piece dress is made of a white patterned blue brocade fabric. It was worn in England. Provenance: Estate of the Earl of Minto (1845-1914): Gilbert Elliot-Murray Kynynmound, 4th Earl of Minto. After attending Eton and Trinity College, Gilbert went on to a successful career within the army, followed by being offered a job in the North-West Mounted Police. Instead he pursued a career in politics and went on to be the Governor General of Canada in 1898, followed by being 17th Viceroy and Governor-General of India in 1905. His popularity in both Canada and India outlived him, with numerous parks, schools and landmarks being named after him.

The dress could have belonged to his mother. Or: it came from his wife's estate. The dress was probably extended in the 1890s. Probably for a fantasy ball, which were very popular at that time. The lace inserts on the pagoda sleeves probably date from that time.

The dress is beautiful. It has a few mould stains and a few very subtle discolorations, probably from the last storage. The dress has probably been lying in a box for over 100 years, but has not been stored very well. The stock stains are hardly visible when decorating. A unique antique dress. The decoration is not included.
