Mourning Bustle Dress, ca. 1882

antique mourning dress 18821 antique mourning dress 1882

Unique mourning dress from the Victorian period, ca. 1882. The dress is a so-called full mourning dress.

In the Victorian era, society observed a specified “mourning period.” The length of time depended on the type of loss: spouse, sibling, parent, child, cousin, etc. For example, widows were expected to wear mourning clothes for two years (one year in full mourning, one year in half mourning). In addition to wearing only black during deep mourning, a widow could not go out in society except to attend church.

The antique dress is a two-piece gown, consisting of a bodice and skirt. The front side of the skirt, the cuffs of the top and the chest part of the top are beautifully decorated with glass beads. Front closure by means of buttons decorated with small glass pins. X-shaped fabric appliqués on the skirt, which are pleated. The skirt ends in a long train. Hemline of the skirt placed in small pleats. The skirt closes at the side. However, hooks and eyes are missing. Excellent condition. The decoration is not included.
