Biedermeier bridal gown

made of antique white silk

Period: late Romantic, 1840-1850

Historical bridal gown from the end of the Biedermeier period, made from embroidered antique white silk. The cut was faithfully reproduced and supplemented with a detachable 2 metre long train. This corresponds to an equally long veil made of embroidered cotton tulle, which was edged in delicate antique Nottingham lace.

Typical of the Biedermeier period is the large off-the-shoulder collar, which is pleated and tapers towards the centre at the front and back, as well as the short decorated sleeves. We also stuck to the original for the rather unusual skirt section of this dress, which is pleated at the front and ruffled at the back.

The original dress can be found in the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg.
