Thank you! The dress is around 120 years old. I'm unsure of if she made it, but it was handmade (you can tell by the stitching). My Mom recently got it professionally cleaned and restored, but, honestly, I think it belongs in a museum, as it is very delicate. You have to be careful about getting in and out of it. We've talked about donating it, even looked at a few Czech heritage museums (great-great-grandmother was a Czech immigrant to Texas), but haven't made a decision. My cousin, the last great-great-granddaughter in this generation, had her picture taken in it last year. It is no real rush- we have it in a preservation bag recommended by the cleaners, but I would like to see it in a place where more people could see it and appreciate it.
