Excellent Condition and recently professionally Cleaned, No Stains, minor pulls at seams and may need some minor sewing, but very minor sewing.

Thank you for looking & be sure to check out our other items we have listed at this time....... Happy Bidding !!!
A part of me thinks this is actually a VERY good reproduction but it's so lovely, and very well could be 1880's, that I have to list it.
