Lovely dress dating from the period of the First French Empire in taffeta silk changing from green yellow bronze to purple and deep violin. Nice finishing sewing by hand, this high-waisted dress closes at the front with two slides at the neckline and under the chest, back cutting in diamond ending with an elegant rose, ancestor of the pet-en-l'air.
