The antique slip was handmade in Norway by Ragna Valum (married name) for her wedding, around 1914-15. White cotton with eyelet straps and eyelet trim around the top. Loose fitting body with slight gathers around the bottom section. Two sections of folds and pretty eyelet with embroidered flowers around the bottom
CONDITION: The slip is in good condition but with multiple issues.
It looks like there was once a piece of trim around the base of the eyelet on the top, because there are marks and small holes around the eyelet from a trim being removed.
There are areas of light spots, several inches in size and scattered faint stains.
On the back there are 8 old repair from 1/2 to 2 inches in size, done kind of roughly. There are also about 6 small 1/4 holes around these repairs.
There is a 5 inch mark that looks like a tape mark in the pleats, didn't come out in a soaking.
