A lovely, original Edwardian cotton house dress or boudoir robe originating from France. The cotton fabric is woven with a tiny dot pattern which is really charming & the large broiderie anglais collar is typical of the era & very pretty. It is not open completely to the hem but has poppers fastening the skirt part & then a ribbon tie at the top. It has evidently had a metal hook & eye there in the past but this is now gone. It is in very good, clean condition & could certainly be worn if required. The issues to note are: a small yellow spot to one shoulder which is hidden under the collar, some rust spots on the inside where the hook & eye was removed (again, not usually seen), also the thread holding the poppers on may need strengthening if this was to be used. It measures approx. 34" or 86cm around the bust, 30" or 76cm around the high waist where the ribbon is & the length from shoulder to hem is 56" or 142cm.
I'm listing lots more lovely old costume, children's clothing, lace, embroidery etc this week.
I always have a range of interesting vintage things listed, on both auction & Buy-it-Now formats, so do check out my other listings.
We aim to send items out the same or next day but usually do not post on Saturdays.
For international buyers, I'm happy to combine shipping on multiple purchases to save money on postage. In this case, if you end up paying too much shipping, I will refund it via Paypal after the items are packed together & sent. Feel free to contact me in advance to check what combined shipping will be. The longest I will collect things together for is 4 days, without payment being made, so if you need to wait longer than 4 days for an item to finish, please pay for any items already purchased.
PAYMENT TIMES: I would be grateful if buyers could pay within 3 days. If you need a little longer please do get in touch so I know you are intending to pay. If I haven't heard anything from the buyer after 3 days I will send a reminder email. If I still haven't heard anything at the end of the 5th day, I will file a non-paying bidder report so that I can reclaim my ebay fees. The item will then be relisted & the non-paying bidder will be added to my blocked bidder list. If you purchase something by mistake or cannot complete for some other reason, please do have the good manners to tell me so that I can cancel the transaction. That way I can reclaim my fees & you will not get a non-paying bidder report.
Please only bid if you genuinely want the item. See my other listings
for more great items!
