Whimsical antique B Altman & Co New York Victorian blouse in a natural white cotton inset lace and crochet collar. Buttons down the front and ties at waist. The tie is quite short as you can see in the photos. Cuffs have intricate crochet and three buttons.
A great piece for a vintage collector, costume designer or fashion inspo piece!
Original "B Altman & Co New York / All Hand Made" label
Not marked with a size but seems to fit a modern XS. Photographed on a size 2/4 dress form. Please use measurements to ensure a proper fit.
Measurements (laying flat):
Shoulder seam-to-shoulder seam: 15"
Top of shoulder-to-hem: 22"
Fair vintage condition with mild discoloration, small holes and and tear under the arm. I have NOT laundered this piece because it's probably best left to the professionals given its 100 year+ age. See last few photos for a close up of some of the flaws.
A NOTE ABOUT MY CLOTHING LISTINGS:
I’m very picky when it comes to cut and style so you can rest assured my vintage garments will be WEARABLE mixed in with your modern wardrobe. I only source high-quality pieces in good to excellent condition and bring them to you at a REASONABLE price. Unless otherwise noted, all garments are free of rips, tears, stains, missing buttons, etc.
Please bear that in mind that, when you purchase vintage, it might not be perfect, but it will be authentic. No returns will be accepted on vintage items so make sure that you read the description and look at the pictures before committing to a purchase. Please contact me if you have additional questions about the nature and condition of the product.
