1870's Bustle Summer Skirt

From the seller:
A charming original circa 1870 lady's snow white muslin petticoat that is decorated with hand made Broderie Anglaise in a fine boteh design. A cartridge pleated waistband with a shell button back closure, and shown over a white foundation. A 26" waist and 36" from waist to front hem. In very nice clean sound condition, with just a few pin dot age flaws and a few extremely light perspiration marks. A beautiful piece of 19th century needle art.
