STUNNING ANTIQUE VICTORIAN AYRSHIRE EMBROIDERED CHRISTENING GOWN DRESS c1840


























Description

Stunning antique early Victorian christening gown, which has been produced from fine white muslin which has delicate white Ayrshire embroidery to the bodice, sleeves and and skirt. The bodice has extensive Ayrshire embroidery, which continues to the full ruffled sleeves. The skirt of the gown has a deep inverted "V" panel, with continuing embroidered and fine drawn thread work to the skirt, with ornate detail to the hem. The gown fastens to the back via thread ties to the neck and waist. The gown has been completely hand stitched, as has the embroidery, which has needlepoint fillings, typical of gown produced in the Ayrshire region of Scotland. The gown is in an original state, and has  not been altered at any point, I have seen many gowns in the past from this period, that have been shortened, or have had the skirts or bodice replaced as later fashioned dictated, so this gown really is a rare survivor of it's type! 

 

A very similar gowns can be found in Heather Toomers book "Baby wore white, Robes for special occasions, 1800-1910", on pages 110/113, these gowns are dated 1840's. 

 

AGE - 
The gown would date to the mid 19th century, circa 1840's.

MEASUREMENTS -
Chest = 20" (under bodice/arms)
Sleeve= 3" (shoulder to cuff)
Length= 43" (shoulder to hem)

CONDITION - 
The gown is in very good condition for it's considerable age, although there are two small old darned repairs to the skirt, with a further stitched repair to the back opening and these are so well done, that they are very difficult to see in the fold of the skirt.
 
 There is a small darned repairs plus several tiny pin sized holes to the bodice, with a small area to the skirt with similar pin holes. There are also several places on the skirt embroidery, where the fine needlepoint filling is damaged or missing, although this is only really noticed on very close inspection. Please refer to the above photographs for details of condition.
