This is a super 2 piece Victorian black dress with a self coloured Sprigged Flower decoration and Lace insert

A Genuine Antique Dress

I cannot see any Bustle Straps but it would probably have been worn with a Bustle

Lovely Sequin and Bead decoration to the neckline and front

Beautiful Lace

Leg of Mutton Sleeves with a Peplum above the elbow

Deep pocket to one seam

All fastens with a multitude of hooks and eyes - some missing

Fully Lined

Lightly Boned Bodice

Approximate measurements:

Waist 24 inches

Bust about 32 inches

Possibly made by a Dressmakers as an inner waist band is machine made with

James Shoolbred & Co Tottenham House machine embroidered on it

James Shoolbred and Company was a draper and later a department store, located on Tottenham Court Road, London.
The store was established in the 1820's at 155 Tottenham Court Road selling textiles for home furnishing. In the 1870's the store began designing, manufacturing and selling high quality furniture. The company ceased trading in 1931


The skirt is virtually Perfect

Top does have some issues:White  Silk lining to the lace has perished and needs replacing

In the past there has been a problem on the right front shoulder and a poor repair has been done. Thus needs doing properly. 

 I am also including a large Triangular tasselled Shawl which came with the dress. Self coloured black stripe pattern

One mendable tear

 Photos have in many cases been lightened to try to show the fabric and design

UK buyers please note that  if the final price goes above £70 it will be posted Next Day Delivery at a cost of £11. Please wait for invoice

 I am happy to provide more photos or information
