Enhanced 1890's Bodice

From the seller:

You are bidding on an antique 19th century ladies jacket.

What is most incredible about this piece is the condition--no rips, no tears, no holes, no deterioration.

Amazing condition.

With original internal boning, brocade ruffle with yellow flowers, hook & eye closures.

26" waist and 34" bust.

From Me:

There are so many things I like about this bodice. First, that lovely bright yellow on the black background pops! Second, the singular bust enhancement that is clearly hand made and sewn. I think it's only one one side due to the ruffle on the other side making having two just not practical - or it could be that she was just bigger on one side for some reason. Anyway, a pretty cool piece!
