Nile green dress from the Regency period, ca. 1818. The term Regency describes an epoch in the history of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland (from 1811 to 1820). Long sleeves, which are decorated on the back with buttons in the cuff area. Gigot sleeves, which are produced inside with a "device". Very nicely pleated chest area. Three-dimensional applications in the hem area of the skirt, on the chest and back (top). These applications are stuffed with cotton (?). Flat applications in the area of the sleeves and shoulders. Semicircular neckline. Very good condition considering the age of the dress and the sensitivity of the materials. One stain in the front of the skirt, underarm stains, a faded area in the appliqué in the hem area. Lightly iridescent silk. Antique belt buckle, velvet ribbon replaced. Dresses of this kind and from this time are very rare.
