This is a great save from the Victoiran era. Really good condition other than a small hole on the right sleeve that is barely noticeable. I have more detailed photos if seriously interested. It is a small size a 2-4. The high collar has antique metal black stays that need a few stitches to keep in place. The design is an Art Deco pattern with green, brown, violet and silver threading. I have seen this pattern style in other Victorian pieces so I do believe it is all original and not made later.
The back is open with a tie at the mid back. This can be upcycled into a wonderful top or dress.
Color of netting is black and colors are a bit more vibrant in person.
Measures 14" across the shoulders. This is what counts as far as getting into this top. The advantage if you can fit into the shoulder width is the bust is adjustable. It can be gathered or let out and tied in the back so an accurate measurement would be impossible. Note tied together measures 11" across the front. Sleeves measure 21 1/2" long.
