Victorian Quilted Petticoat

From the seller:

Antique Victorian green Silk Quilted Petticoat. Great condition with some signs of wear as shown in pictures. It is lined with 2

different type of calicos.

Measurements :

Waist: 12 inches laying flat

Waist to hem: 32 1/2 inches

Around bottom hem: 36 inches laying flat

Any questions, please contact me.

From Me:

These quilted petticoats are so hard to date because they were popular for a number of years. Based on the calicos, I think this is from the 1860's. Here is a sampler pack of calicos that have a similar look to the ones inside the petticoat. The sampler pack dates from the 1860's. Another example of cottons circa 1860.
