This is a calico bustle pad in crescent-form with attached tapes to secure it in position at or just below waist level. The age is indeterminate and it is probably a reproduction. It is in very good condition. This item would be a useful addition for displaying a late 19th century bustle gown or for wearing. Maximum width 12 ins (30.5cm). Height 6 ins (15.2cm). Weight 78 grams.
