Victorian Quilted Petticoat

From the seller:

Believed to be an earlier circa 1840 lady's golden silk satin gored petticoat that was re-fashioned just after the Civil War, with a cotton ticking waist with a pull through with a silk twill tape drawstring tied at the back. Lined in a glazed cotton, hand and quilted in a vertical chevron pattern with a deep complimenting horizontal chevron hem that is corded above and below the hem pattern. An adjustable waist, 26" as shown, and 37" from waist to front hem. Recently de-accessioned from a New York State museum collection. In very nice clean sound as found condition, with just a few small spots to the lining, and a very light 3" spot at one side that must be looked for. All is reflected in the reserve price for this attractive 19th Century quilted petticoat.

From Me:

Another thing that makes my hands hurt just looking at it....
