Early 18th Century French or English Infant’s Brocade Gown with Silver Lace
Prior to the late 18th century children were dressed as miniature adults, on offer here is an early 18th century French or English Infant’s brocaded gown more than likely made from one of the Mothers old gowns. The ground is a creamy satin with unusual cornucopias sprouting leaves and lobed leaves in silver metal and bright silk threads in hues of red, green, blue and pink with cast shadows of meandering flowers and leaves on the satin. The neck and sleeves are edged with silver lace trim with cording to lace up the sleeves. Shorter in back, so the child isn’t sitting on the brocade, this gown was more than likely worn as a shift over a simple white garment and would have been gender neutral, being worn by either male or female. Lined with simple fine homespun linen. (Antique mannequin not included) Size: Front 22” in length x Back 16 ¼” in length x 30” bottom width
