Regency Era Child's Stays

From the seller:

A c. 18th Century child's stays. Measures 17.5" across when it is spread out. Had an old note attached to it dated 1940 saying it was 150 years old. From an old California rancho family. I have a couple of other amazing items (including a pre-raphaelite gown) from this sale that I will be adding as soon as i can find someone to model.

From Me:

I'd put these around the 1800-1815 time frame. So, not 18th C, but very early 19th!
