Antique c1800's christening gown. Aborate and lovely, with loads of lavish whitework embroidery. And an unusual sash in back for a bow. The embellishment along the bottom measures about 10 inches high. The embroidery is actually early machine - so fine it's often mistaken for hand made.

The gown measures 42 inches from shoulder to hem. Laying flat, it measures 10 inches across the chest, from underarm to underarm, and the neck opening is about 4 inches across.

The dress fastens in back with 2 buttons. Recently hand laundered, bright and clean, just a few faint specks and discolorations.

We note loose threads along the bottom, a couple repairs, some tears in the sash (10th photo), occasionally small holes in the cotton, and a torn inside panel that lines the bodice. You'll forgive a few issues - this gown looks. The item "LOVELY Antique Baby Christening Gown c1800s DENSE WHITEWORK EMBROIDERY Sash BOW" is in sale since Thursday, May 26, 2016.
