Elegant cream-golden rococo gown from a Scottish collection, ca. 1772. Probably a summer gown, as the silk is very thin and resembles paper silk. Embroidered filigree floral motif in the silk. Watteau pleat. And what is rather rare in these dresses: the stomacher is present. More than that, it makes it clear that women have been literally sewn into these dresses. Stomacher and front of the dress are decorated with small bows and with (wide) ribbons placed in folds. As flowers stylized edges of woolen fabric (they resume the colors from the embroidered flowers in the silk). Two side openings for the butt pockets. Typical cuffs on the ¾ length sleeves. Very good state of preservation. The edge of the dress has suffered somewhat over the last 250 years. Previous owners have stabilized the silk. Shoes, jewelry and petticoat are not included. We have had a few rococo gowns in hand: but none so elegant recently. They have become very rare.
