undercoat - Silk - Early 20th century

Underclothing from early 20th century. Italian craftsmanship. Silk crepes, textured fabric, fuse and mechanic lace. The skirt and blouse are part of a dress that is missing the top. The skirt is trimmed with fabric that has been textured only in the flounce (which was visible), on the right side it has a hidden pocket, probably near a buttonhole that the skirt above must have had, near which there are two patches. The blouse is finished in the parts where it was visible (the neck and the sleeves, well trimmed and structured). The garment is fairly well preserved, considering its age. Has loose threads, a few worn spots. Dating back to the early 20th century. Museum worthy clothing article.
Tracked shipping. Should the goods be exported, the buyer may be subsequently charged customs fees and duties.
