What a treat to find this gem in such great condition. The artistry and skill put into this blouse will last for generations. Gone are the days where one had a month to sit and hand crochet their clothing, the amount of time this piece most likely took. The lady who worked this piece knew what she was doing and has artfully mixed foliage and flowers in a symmetrical design. It opens up the back but in being crochet and having give it could also be worn backwards as a light jacket.
Decade: 1900s, 1910s.
