40's Violet Dyed Lace Lounge Robe$55.00
Have all the luxury of a Trousseaux by Terris, but with a rare pop of violet color!
Trousseaux by Terris has been manufacturing sweet and simple Intimates and Loungewear since the 1930's, but most examples are in white, off-white or pale pastel colors. This robe was originally an Ivory hue color, but I overdyed it violet, to help some stain become less noticeable. Made from a beautifully lustrous viscose or rayon fabric, its medium-weight hand fabric is very swishy. A very finely tatted lace is present at neckline, yoke line and cuffs. Both the yokes and cuffs feature a delicate gathering of the fabric -the only real decorative detail. The front closes with thin self-fabric ties at the collarbone, and the cuffs fasten with self-covered buttons. Overall condition is good, with some repaired small tears at back, slight discoloration/staining still somewhat visible post-dying, and some pin sized holes throughout (please be aware that older rayon may easily fall prey to moths). Only label reads 'Trousseaux by Terris'.
