Bustle Era Quilted Petticoat
From the seller:
A beautiful 1890’s ivory satin wedding petticoat that has been de-accessioned from a museum collection. The bottom hemline is padded and quilted. The edge of the hemline has a pleated satin ruffle. The petticoat has a trained back. It is in very good and sturdy condition. There are no splits or holes in the fabric. There are a few small minor age spots. Waist 24 Front length 42 Back length 47.
This looks like it's about 10 years older than the seller believes - notice how it really looks like it could use a bustle pad? I'm putting it in the 1880's.
