    Hi all, I acquired this large old skirt and am unable to assign a rough date to it. It is very large, solid, heavy and quite well made. I'm thinking it's from somewhere between 1850 and 1950 !!?? It's quite stunning. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Wow, stunning! I'm guessing the experts will need to see pics of the stitching and closures as well as any labels if they exist.

    The lining looks quite old. Would it be possible to show us the entire lining and a close up of the stitching on it. I think that would help to determine the age. It is really beautiful, pity the top is no longer with it, that would have really helped to decipher the age.

    Thank you very much for your help. Here are some more detailed pics. It doesn't have and looks like it never had a label. It has a very small waist as well.

  6. I am seeing a 1950s ball gown skirt or bustle style over skirt.
    Or a costume.
    With the netting and stitching, this doesnt look older than 1950s.

    That certainly is a beautiful garment. I am seeing very late 1940s to very early 1950s.
