Antique Hungarian hand embroidered shirt, blouse from Transylvania size S/M

Antique blouse hand embroidered with burgundy woolen thread around the cuffs, and tunic collar and vertical lines from under armpits to the lower hem. It is hand embroidered with burgundy woolen thread on white batiste, grenadine, mol, a fine cotton fabric bought usually from Austro Hungary. The blouse is more than 60 - 80 years old.



Extremely scarce blouse.



Condition: nice antique condition.



The blouse is washed, clean and ready to be used. But it must be washed only with cold water and mild detergent. I recommend immediately dry it in sunshine if it is washed by hand. For not experienced persons I recommend to DRY CLEAN only the blouse.



All those antique blouses from Kalotaszeg / Kalata area are hand embroidered with the same material which bleed in water but with a proper care: mild detergent, cold water, in last water add vinegar which fix the color and dry it immediately in sunshine (no automatic dryer), the blouse is not affected, the white of the cotton fabric remain clean. This colour do not bleed but I still recommend to follow my previous care instructions.



Measurements: blouses length: 50 cm or 20 inches



around chest: 132 cm or 52 inches



from the shoulder to the under armpit: 22 cm or 8. 66 inches



the tunic collar length: 30 cm or 11. 81 inches.



It will fit to size: S. It is still wearable for a M size but it is not very comfortable to wear under armpits and it is small around neck.



Condition: good condition with traces of the wear.



Flaws: A tinny rust stain on the chest. Some difuse yellowish stains which are hardly noticeable and which can not be captured in my photos. It is an 80 years old blouse. The tie strings with tassels are new because the older ones was missing when I found the blouse.



Overall the blouse is very scarce, beautiful and it can be displayed in museums. It is an extremely hard to find blouse and this the first blouse I found with this burgundy embroidery.
