1860's Ballgown Bodice

From the seller:

A flattering 1860’s Civil War era white organdy bodice that has been de-accessioned from a museum collection.  The bodice has a round neckline with short cap sleeves.  The neck, waist and armscyes are piped.   It has a boned and pointed front and back.  The bodice is lined with cotton and has a back lacing closure.  It has not been cleaned so there is some very light underarm discoloration, a dime size soil mark near the armscye and a few pin size scattered age spots.  Bust 32  Waist 22.
