Champagne embroidered duchesse satin wedding dress with train - France Circa 1938
Wedding dress with long train in champagne-coloured Duchesse satin. Fluid cut with a strapless blouse with a folded collar, long sleeves with darts and double buttoning in front and back. The back is extended by a single piece of fabric in an imposing train with large flounces. Machine embroidery with cord stuffing forms baroque arabesques, which start on each side of the hips and continue in a circle on the bottom of the train. Very nice finishing of the seams, especially at the buttons. Dress without lining or claw. It requires a wedding petticoat not supplied. A halo and some discrete soiling on the bottom of the train, otherwise clean and without holes or stains. Very good condition of colour and conservation.
