Incredible silk taffeta Victorian mourning jacket circa 1800s!

They truly don't make clothes like this anymore. Totally handcrafted with meticulous attention to detail, the jacket is fully lining, has boning, puff sleeve gathering, and lace at the cuffs and neckline.

In amazing condition for a hundred plus year-old garment, there are two very small holes, one under the lapel and not noticeable when worn, and a tiny one, more like fabric separation on the right sleeve. There is minor unraveling of stitches, which could easily be repaired, at the base of the front sash that comes across from the left-side of the shoulder and attaches to the right-side of the button band with a hook-and-eye-closure. Some stitches have unravel around one of the boning supports. If interested, convo me for more details and pictures.

With care, this antique may be worn by a very petite person with a tiny waist. Would look awesome on display in your sewing room or shop.

Size: XXS
Waist: 22"
Bust: 30"
Length Front: 17" from shoulder
Peplum Neckline to Base: 20"
Sleeves: 22" from shoulder
18 original buttons
