+++ Condition +++
Condition is very good, especially for a lace piece of this age. There is only one hole in the lace that I could find, which I have shown in the photos. It is on the upper part of the dress on the front, but it is virtually invisible when worn, as it lays on top of another layer of lace.
The upper beige section of the silk lining has a couple of thin places, small holes, and stains that are not visible when worn. Small holes in one armpit. Overall it feels strong enough to wear with care. The beige silk lining at the top is the most delicate.
The lace feels strong, but keep in mind that lace is delicate and subject to catching or snagging on jewelry, etc, so use your discretion.
