Natural Form Hoops

From the seller:

A superb 1860’s Civil War era hoop cage. The cage is made of linen straps and linen covered wire hoops. It has attached should straps. The waist has a front hook and eye closure. It is in very good and sturdy condition. Waist 26 Length 31 Width at bottom 71.

From Me:

DUDE! Have you seen 1860's Civil War skirts before?!? They ain't no 71 hem at the bottom. Sorry.

This is a really cool late 1870's natural form era hoop to support those massive layers of velvet. You can see a similar hoop here in google patents.
