Year: 1880's

Label: Unlabeled 

Color: Brown & Burgundy

Fabric: Silk

Lining: Polished Cotton 

Size: Not wearable

Special Features:  The gown is obviously a marriage, but it looks so wonderful together. The polonaise is brown silk brocade with gorgeous abalone buttons down the front. The polonaise is dart fitted through the body and has sparkling beadwork trim down either side of the center front ending with beaded ball fringe. A tiny patch pocket on the left front skirt and a large bow with a beaded medallion on the front skirt. Brown silk fringe and chenille edges the hemline. The back of the polonaise has a large bow and beaded medallion that matches the front bow. Long sleeves also have the same bows and medallions on the lower arms and also have ivory lace around the wrists. The burgundy satin skirt is beautifully draped with rows of shirring, ruffles and pleats.  

Condition: The polonaise is in wonderful condition. The only thing I can find is one of the beaded ball fringe is missing. The skirt on the other hand has the waistband and the upper cotton bustle portion is completely shattered. The silk on the skit is fine.
