Edwardian Black Bodice

From the seller:

Up for auction is this museum de-accessioned antique Victorian beaded black jacquard and creme bow dress bodice. This bodice has black beading on the front and wrists.. Hook and eye closures. Wearable if you can fit into it- this is extremely small. This would also make an excellent display piece. Please Note: Hook missing for eyes at back of neck so I pinned part of the collar as shown. Overall good condition.


Measurements are taken in
inches while item is laid flat

Length: 18.00 inches
Chest: 13.00 inches
Waist: 10.00 inches

From Me:

These measurements seem off to me but eh. It is probably a young miss bodice. The pigeon front makes this a lovely Turn of the Century piece.
