1880's Sample Corset











From the seller:

Extremly rare auth antique corset from the late 1800s .


Made of dark ecru cotton or linen ( very strong fabric ) and leather parts .

Extrem wasp waist .


Very well made .


GIFT ---> pink lacing .


COLOR :

Dark ecru , red and yellow ( leather parts ) .


SIZE :

No tag of size but the corset is very very small . Seems to be a XXXS actual size .


The lacing at the back can be adjusted and so the size can be larger .


MATERIALS :

Cotton or linen ( very strong fabric ) and leather parts .


CONDITION :

The corset is in good condition for its age .
The only damage are many holes on the leather parts , spots and some red threads are disconnected .


From Me:

According to the corset itself, it's from 1883 (it says so on the busk). If anyone is curious as to why it's so small, it's a sample corset that a saleswo/man would have on display. Or, it could be from a doll.
