Small Rococo Bodice, ca. 1770

antique rococo bodice 17701 antique rococo bodice 1770

Bodice of a child from the Rococo period, ca. 1770. In paintings from the Rococo period, we have always seen children dressed like adults and portrayed with jewelry. This top is a small edition of an adult top. Probably the mother's dress and the child's dress were sewn from the same fabric. Woven silk fabric with a floral motif. The short top is laced backwards - nothing unusual in tops for children from the period. Long sleeves, with the typical double flounces in the arm area. Original lace at the ends of the sleeves. Inside lined with red silk. Inside device for the hard corset rod to make the typical shape.

Or: The top is a rare pattern/sample that was brought by tailors - mostly from the city - to the castles of the nobles in the countryside, so that they could order the "latest fashion".

Or: the top once belonged to a figure of the Virgin Mary from the Rococo period. As a special tribute, nobles donated such figures to churches and cathedrals. These figures were dressed according to the time, always "fashionable". i

Whatever is true, this top is an absolute rarity and a small sensation. A unique piece of clothing from the Rococo period, which, if it could tell, would certainly have an exciting story to tell. Excellently preserved. One small open seam, one tiny stain, lightly worn silk inside.

Length top: ~ 24 cm
Length Sleeve: ~ 30 cm
