The embroideries are tinny and delicate and splendid hand done.
The commercial linen used on Romanian costumes at the beginning of the 20th century was a sign of the social status because it was imported and expensive.

Condition: excellent condition , I was not able to find a flaw. The embroidery is gorgeous , tinny but the thread is slightly discolored due to the dress age. The upper part of the dress and the lower part of the dress are most probably from DIFFERENT eras because they are slightly different. The collar around neck is not as old as the dress but this is normal for a dress of this age.The dress is washed, clean and ready to be used. Wash the dress with cold water and mild detergent. For a dress like this , a woman from the past spent months and months of hand work. She stitched on it her dreams , her emotions , her love , her pride.
