$ 289.00

Vividly colorful antique vintage 1880s Victorian paisley polonaise in a rare and hard-to-find larger size! Bright and bold red cotton is printed all over with a colorful paisley floral print in yellow, green, blue, black, and white. Lace trimmed neck and cuffs. Draped bustle back has an inner waist tie and is supported by three permanent straps. Bodice is shaped but not boned, and it's fully lined in homespun cotton. Hook/eye bodice closure. No labels, tags, or marked size. See measurements.

Excellent vintage condition, wearable and strong. Scattered small breaks in the lace trim and some color bleeds/fading under the arms. Small hole where one of the bustle straps is internally attached and a few scattered little holes in the skirt. Discoloration to the lining. Overall, especially considering its age, this piece is in great shape.
