Antique Belle Epoque Lace Blouse

Seriously one of the most beautiful blouses we've ever had.  Black netting with tons of lace applique and ruffles.  High neck.  'Pigeon breast' style front that is iconic of Belle Epoque high fashion.  Amazing sleeves with tons of frills at the cuffs.  Back hook-and-eye closure.  Lined with black silk.  

DETAILS:

Condition:  Overall excellent.  The blouse shows normal wear, there are a couple of pin holes in the silk lining near the front hem (does not affect wear).  It also looks as though someone might have snipped the waist ties shorter than original length.  As with all items of this age, this blouse should be worn with care.  Sold AS IS.
