Edwardian nightgown

#4021 $750 Sold

Silk chiffon nightgown, c.1910

Fine silk lingerie from the early 20th century is prized for its exquisite hand detailing. This lovely nightgown features panels of handmade filet lace, delicate floral lace, and silk ribbon rose buds. Here is an exemplar of Edwardian déshabillé ("undress"), garments worn only in the house or in semi-private settings.

The nightgown is fashioned from sheer pink silk chiffon. The bodice, which is pleated to the empire waistline, falls in soft folds below the ribbon ties. The satin ribbon sash is double faced: pink on one side and pale blue on the other side. The neckline is adjustable with a silk ribbon drawstring.

The seductive allure and delicate femininity of the floral lace, as it adorns and caresses your body, will not be lost on the man in your life.

The condition is excellent and all original. It looks like it was never worn.

It measures: 38" bust and empire waist, 48" hip, and 57" from the shoulder to the hem.
