SOLD Original 18thC Dolls Costume

An extremely rare and beautiful original dolls costume dating from around 1780.
In fact this costume did not come to me complete. The fabulous hand quilted silk petticoat has been in my own collection for some time. The bodice came to me recently . I do not have a doll of this size and as the 2 items are absolutely perfect together I decided to let the petticoat go.
Both items are so beautiful.
They do both show signs of age. The bodice is damaged at the back and has some repair and is faded however the material is strong and the thick hessian lining has helped it keep its strength.
It is boned at the front and back.
The skirt also has some wear and some repair but never the less is beautiful. Although this type of skirt was often worn beneath an outer skirt it could also be worn on its own.
I have shown measurements and my guess would be that this would fit a doll of around 17 inches with narrow waiste.
