1870's Bustle top

From the seller:

In this lot, you are bidding on a Victorian bodice with attached bustle train and side panniers (no reinforcement in the panniers). Hook and eye closure in the bodice. Top portion has buttonholes, but buttons are not present. Lace ruffles at the cuffs. Fashioned of a black silk brocade- Has wear and tear, but still in nice condition. Great design! (Wire bustle beneath the train is not for sale-for photo only, thanks)

Label: none

measures (all items are measured flat in inches + doubled):


bust: 32 waist: 22

length with train: 64 bodice length: 15

arm: 16 shoulder to shoulder: 13.5

Has not been cleaned.

From Me:

This may be later but it is a bustle era top in pretty decent condition.
