This fine antique ladies night dress dates to apx. the last quarter of the 19th century, 1875 - 1890's and matches the gentleman's nightshirt we have listed separately and shown for reference in the last image.
The gown has a Scottish provenance; purchased directly from the granddaughter, whose grandparents immigrated from Scotland and settled in the Pacific Northwest.
According to the family this nightgown belonged to emigre grandmother.  Please see measurement details above.
Most frequently found examples of women's and men's night wear of the period is quite plain and utilitarian.  This night dress, however, is rather extensively decorated with lots of frilly, one plus inch wide, Broderie Anglaise whitework embroidery lace at rounded neck, front placket and sleeve edge.  Decorative stitching accents many, many rows of fine pin-tucking at yoke. Short sleeves.   One original linen covered button at neck.
Constructed of very fine, high quality, medium weight cotton.  A meticulously finished and very well made period ladies nightgown.
This night dressing gown is in excellent antique estate condition.  It was obviously treasured and well cared for.  I find no rips, tears, snags, breaks, stains, spots, or other problems of any kind to either the lace or fabric.
The boudoir gown is freshly laundered and pressed.  Actual color is quite white, however please note that I slightly darkened a few of the images above to better show detail.
A fancy, high quality, well made antique garment.

As stated above, this nightgown matches the gentleman’s night shirt listed separately on our site; same fabric, front placket, identical buttons and very similar (smaller scale) Broderie Anglaise whitework lace.  Please see last image above and link at left.
