CIRCA 1940's, LUMINOUS LADIES SILK PEIGNOIR W/ALENCON LACE







CIRCA 1940's, LUMINOUS LADIES SILK PEIGNOIR W/ALENCON LACE. This is such a glorious example ! The luminous tapered  silk satin gown has a wide border of shaped Alencon lace and the most wonderful silk covered buttons down the front of the gown.  Measuring approx.17" across chest, approx.14" across chest line,and 17-18" across hipline.  It measures approx. 55-56" down the front and much longer at the back.All measurements approximate! This gown seems as if it was never worn..or if worn, only rarely. There are some tiny scattered pinpoint spots near the bottom, perhaps a few very very light water marks and some creasing in the silk.Overall it presents itself beautifully and as said seems really as if it was never used so I assume any problems were from storage. The gown is quite exquisite and would grace any very good collection of vintage lingerie.It is quite simply... beautiful!
