Young Girl's Hoop

From the seller:

A rare child’s 1860 Civil War era hoop cage. The cage is made of stripe linen straps and linen covered wire hoops. The cage is being offered in as found condition. There is scattered age discoloration and the waistband would need replacement. This can be seen in the photos. Waist 22 Length 13 ½.

From Me:


The fashion plate is from 1864 and shows how this hoop would have been worn.
