Spencer in Directoire Style, France, ca. 1795

antique round gown bodice 17951 antique round gown bodice 1795

In the period between 1795 and 1799, the time of the so-called Directoire (German: Direktorium; the heyday coincides with the last period of government of the French Revolution), neoclassical clothing had become fashionable in France. This fascination with the classical past was encouraged by the recent discoveries of Pompeii and Herculaneum. A simple, light-colored chemise of thin, flowing material was worn and held together with a narrow band under the breasts. Often such a spencer, like the one presented here, was worn over thin dresses.

This spencer is made of light pink silk, which has a floral motif. Origin: France. Semi-circular neckline with cord for gathering. Shirred bust area, which is typical of the so-called "round gown". Three-quarter length sleeves with lace trim. Elongated snip in the back. Inside an antique "brassiere" made of linen. Lined with linen. Excellent condition. A few tiny holes. Garments from the Directoire period have survived extremely rarely. The decoration is not included.
