ARE SOME LOUSY PHOTOS OF AN ACTUAL LABELED LIBERTY GOWN
NOTE THE SIMILARITIES!!!
#2694 - c. 1912/1913 Pink Silk Satin Trained Edwardian Gown! Possibly LIBERTY & CO. of London. First off, the color is NOT washed out.... some computer screens show lighter than mine. It's a lovely pink color! Ok... I absolutely can't confirm this as the gown has no label inside, but I believe this to be a Liberty & Co. gown. Why you ask? Well, I have found a gown with extremely similar detailing with the Liberty & Co. of London label, and another dealer confirmed this opinion as well. Designed to showcase the very fashionable Arts and Craft aesthetic style that was very popular during this time period. It's a very well made gown, completely lined in off-white silk with lace detail under hem. Interestingly sexy bodice for the time. All lace bodice with pink silk under just covering the breasts. It's lined otherwise, but gives the impression of "nude". There is pink embroidery work on the bodice front, back, sleeves cuffs, waistline and a panel at the edge of the skirt. Measures: 36/37" bust, 26/27" waist, 60" long in front from shoulder to hem, 75" long in back. Excellent condition! I see one 1" spot on the side of the train, and there is some minor damage to the inside chiffon lining at the shoulders, but those are picky points! The material is in strong condition. This gown is a wonderful example of the Arts and Crafts movement and a worthy addition to any collection.
