Regency dress in the neoclassical style

This regency dress is luscious. Just look at the superb workmanship. It's a breathtaking hand-embroidered mull dress with whitework embroidery and a rare train. It is also a near-perfect embodiment of the Neoclassical style. (1800-1810) At $985 it sold quickly. What a steal.

Also on the site, an embroidered French silk purse, c.1780-1800 with the words, "Quand on aime tout est plaisir." Plaisir? Oh, yes. How true.
