Early 1890's Winter Bodice

From the seller:

A stunning 1880-1890’s bright red wool jacket. The label reads L. P. Hollander & CO. Boston & New York. The collar and front opening are trimmed with black fur. The body of the jacket and sleeve cuffs are trimmed with bands of black satin creating a beautiful effect. The jacket is lined with printed silk and has a front hook and eye closure. The jacket is in very good condition. There are no moth holes and no underarm discoloration. There is a loose seam under each arm that will need very minor re-stitching and the inside lining has overall splitting. Bust 32 Waist 24 Length 21.

From Me:

I think this is from right about 1891.
