Amazing antique French 1900 lace dress deshabille or tea gown - wedding?

Phew! I arrived back from France last weekend, and have spent all week madly laundering, organising and photographing the treasures I bought back with me….so lots of new items for you to peruse. I concentrated on smaller items on this trip – antique bonnets, lace, buttons, haberdashery, costume, fabrics and more. I was up at the crack of dawn each day, and managed to winkle out some delightful and quirky finds – enjoy browsing! 

As I am not entirely sure which way round this would have been worn, I have shown it on my mannequin both ways! It would make a stunning wedding dress, with all those layers and inserts of fine Valenciennes lace... It is also a decent size, not as tiny as many of the dresses I find from this period. It is freshly laundered and snowy white, with no marks, stains or damage .... extraordinary! Made from finest lawn, there are lace panels at both sides of the dress, as well as the bodice. The skirt is gathered on to a wide Petersham belt which is hidden inside the dress - the belt closes with three metal hooks and bars, and is 74cm in circumference. Some other measurements (all taken with the dress kaid flat and measured straight across): shoulder to shoulder approx. 40cm (raglan style sleeve inset, so this is variable), underarm to underarm 56cm sleeves approx. 38cm, length 139cm. A beautiful antique lace gown.....

PLEASE READ

I sell antique and vintage textiles and ephemera - unique items that have history, and may show signs of this - it is part of their charm. I try to describe any obvious faults as truthfully as I can. However, as most of my items are 100 years old, they will often bear the traces of a previous life. Please think carefully about bidding if you are looking for a pristine item that is as new. My passion is for beautiful antique textiles and quirky vintage items with a gently faded grandeur, so do consider this before deciding to bid.

PAYMENT

Payment to be made within 3 DAYS of auction end please. My items always end on a Sunday evening, so payment must be received by the following Wednesday evening.

Paypal ONLY for international buyers - no bank transfers.

For UK buyers I accept Paypal (preferred), personal cheques drawn on a UK bank account and uncrossed postal orders. When paying by UK cheque, please note that your item(s) cannot be sent until your cheque has cleared.

All buyers who fail to pay within my 3 day deadline, or who do not contact me to arrange for delayed payment, are automatically added to my blocked buyers list, and will not be able to buy from me again. I also automatically open an unpaid item case against non-paying buyers on the 4th day after auction end.


SHIPPING

I am happy to ship worldwide, and always combine shipping costs on items that end on the same day. I do NOT hold over payment of items from one week to the next - all items must be paid for within 3 days of auction end.

From 1/1/2014, all parcels will be sent by tracked shipping ONLY. Parcels to UK will be sent by Special Next day Delivery, or ParcelForce 48 for heavier items.  For international destinations, parcels weighing under 2kg will be sent by Airsure or International Signed For, and those that weigh over 2kg. will be sent by Global Priority. Apologies for the higher costs, but eBay policy has changed, and I can only send by tracked shipping now.

My items are carefully packed so they reach you safely, and I charge a small fee for packaging materials – this is included in the shipping cost.

I aim to dispatch parcels to my customers within 48 hours of receiving payment.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!



RETURNS POLICY

Returns are accepted within 14 days, but ONLY if the item has been seriously mis-described, which I try very hard not to do! BUYER pays for return TRACKED shipping. Please note that as I sell unique, antique textiles and ephemera, any item you return MUST be well packed and received in exactly the same condition as sent. Any UK customs duty that I incur in order to retrieve a returned international parcel will be deducted from the refund amount.

If a returned item is found to have been worn, laundered, repaired or damaged in any way, thereby compromising its value, I will only make a partial refund according to the condition. Once I have received the item in return, and have verified its condition, I will refund your original payment and original shipping costs within 3 working days. 

SERVICE

I always try to offer my customers excellent service, and will continue to do so. As I am a one-woman business, and am often away seeking out interesting items to offer you, I am unable to offer a seamless “Amazon-like” service, with dispatch of parcels within 24 hours, and free domestic shipping. I will nevertheless continue to offer the same professional service as before despite the recent changes in eBay policy.

Please do contact me if you have any questions - I am always happy to help.
