Lovely silk Edwardian bodice with lace collar and cuffs. The original maker's label is present inside and says "Miss Garratt Detroit, Mich."
There is also a name label inside that appears to be "E. Baerma" or something similar.
There are hook and eye closures down the front middle inner bodice and snaps to secure the front flap/collar.
The lining is beautiful and features dress shields in the underarms that appear to be filled with horsehair and bust enhancing ruffles.
Bodice is boned. There is a waistband inside that closes with a hook and eye. Two hooks on the back of the bodice for attaching a skirt.

+++ Condition +++
The bodice is in overall good antique condition with a few flaws to note:
- Dime sized hole in the back of one arm
- A couple of scattered pinhead sized holes
- Small hole/thin place on one of the lapels
- Some lace breaks
Wearable with extra care but likely best for display or study.
