This is what the 1890's looked like

From the seller:

Olive green Edwardian Victorian Vintage bodice-- a beautiful antique piece that could have lived in the Titanic era!Leg of mutton sleeve, rose insert, lots of boning, hook/eye closure, feather trim on cuffs and at waist closure;in fair condition; big lapel, stand up collar, great display pieceBust: 29, waist 21, sleeve hem to pit: 18This item is great for costume research, to make a pattern, or just to collect from a bygone era.

From Me:

Based on the measurements, I'd say this is a young woman's bodice (teenager) rather than an adult.
