Antique Pure Linen Hand-Embroidered Shirt
Stunning pure linen Italian antique shirt, circa 1890s, in perfect condition (a true testament to the quality and craftmanship of the time!) My guess is this exquisite piece was originally a linen nightgown that was at a later stage cut and reworked into a top (very successfully, as it looks great on!) Long enough to be tucked in and crafted from cooling, top quality linen in a pale ecru shade, it features elaborate hand-made seethrough cutwork embroidery on the bodice and scalloped trim on the neckline and sleeves. Fastens at the front with small buttons. A rare antique gem that is totally wearable for the everyday!
