A rare find ORIGINAL, BEAUTIFUL and COMPLETE lady's informal robe of aqua blue silk brocade with gilted buttons, CLASSIC style of circa 1860. Well kept for over 30 years by the previous owner and still in good condition!

The sleeve bands are of creamy white satin with detailed satin stitch embroidery of lady figures in the gardens. The trim is weaved satin brocade on black silk. A old tag is still attached to the inside of the collar. It's truly a wonderful collection piece for any collector!

Size: 48" (122cm) of length, 54" (107cm) across the sleeves.

Condition: Good condition. Age wear, some color fading, trim loss, small tear and loose threads on the back shoulder.
