Early Edwardian Bodice

From the seller:

Please do not confuse my low starting bids with low quality items. vntgclothing trusts in the eBay bidding system and I believe the market will find the right prices. I get all of my items from high end, specialty estate auctions and private sales. I strive to bring my customers nothing but the finest in Victorian clothing & textiles. Thank you so much for looking and please be sure to add vntgclothing to your favorites!

This auction is for a most exquisite antique 1800's Victorian corset jacket. This does need some silk restoration. It is a beautiful jet black patterned silk fabric jacket with ivories damask silk bodice insert and hidden sleeve cuffs. Lovely jet beaded trim decorates the jackets edges. Beautiful labe appliques down the front bodice. Fully lined in polished cotton with a total of 12 sewn in corset stays. Bustle skirt supporter hooks are sewn to jacket back hemline. Early hook & eye closure up the front. For some reason the damage occured to two areas of the plain jet black silk only....left upper bodice, left and right upper back and left back sleeve. The jacket otherwise is in wonderful condition. These are fabric sections that could easily be replaced if you have a good seamstress. The overall patterned silk fabric is in wonderful condition...this silk is of a heavier weight.

This gorgeous Victorian dress jacket measures as follows:

Bust: 32 inches

Waist: 26 inches

Underarm to lower hemline: 7 inches

Underarm to sleeve end: 16 inches

Just a fabulous antique 1800's fashion study piece of clothing which also can be worn once restored.

Paypal payment is due within 3 days of the auction close. This is strictly enforced. If you cannot pay, please refrain from bidding. Thank you!

Please note that non-payment cases are automatically opened on 4th post auction day.

Priority Mail with delivery confirmation.

International bidders are most welcome!

From Me:

Yeah...ummm...a Victorian Dress Jacket would be something a MAN would wear. Not this. This is an Edwardian bodice in poor condition but I love the raised print on the back and sides so it gets to come play here. :-)
