Excellent. There are two tiny and very faint marks on the front which do not show in a photo. The original wicker work hoops were crumpled from storage and have been reinforced with modern boning.
This dress is from the United States and belonged to a lady called Gladys, who married her love a few years after he returned from World War 1.
