Rare C. 1870 ~Parisienne~ Poupee Corset with Exquisite Structured Boning and 18 GrommetsRare C. 1870 ~Parisienne~ Poupee Corset with Exquisite Structured Boning and 18 GrommetsRare C. 1870 ~Parisienne~ Poupee Corset with Exquisite Structured Boning and 18 GrommetsRare C. 1870 ~Parisienne~ Poupee Corset with Exquisite Structured Boning and 18 GrommetsRare C. 1870 ~Parisienne~ Poupee Corset with Exquisite Structured Boning and 18 GrommetsRare C. 1870 ~Parisienne~ Poupee Corset with Exquisite Structured Boning and 18 Grommets

For the poupee who loves the latest Parisienne styles, this gorgeous French corset is a window into a bygone era. Also from the private collection discussed in the listing of our Highback 12 grommet corset, this piece is a very rare example completed with no less than 22 grommets (all original) and a "skirt catch" at the front, which would prevent the lady's trained skirt from riding up and obscuring her waist line. When laid flat, the corset has a rather boxy appearance, but- if styled and stuffed correctly- this example can achieve an incredibly curvaceous figure. On the Fashion Doll body of your choosing, it will take any shape. For an even more drastic silhouette, the corset can be stuffed in addition to fitting the body. Created, I suspect, for a drastic wood bodied Wasp Waist doll, this corset was not something that would have been available for ready order from a catalog, but rather purchased at a specialty shoppe like Mlle. Bereaux's or Mme Lavallee-Perrone's boutique- or even custom ordered from the same couturiers that made Mama's corsets. Compared to what we pay for our dolls, a small piece such as this is a delectable investment and a wise addition to any trousseau! I absolutely adore this corset and know that the lucky poupee who enjoys it will be smitten with it.

Condition: STUNNING. Just a grade A, museum quality corset made of a thin canvas. Expertly structured with 9 bones, open sway hips and stitch indication for breasts, this corset is as structurally close to real victorian lady's corsets as I have seen from the 1870 era. You won't find a nicer one anywhere!

**We now ship EVERY SINGLE ONE of our antique costume pieces in archival, museum quality, acid free tissue paper. We store them in an acid free, climate controlled environment, because we want you to get a textile that has been frozen in time. As curators of these antiques, we know how important it is for them to be as fresh for the next generation of students and enthusiasts as they were for us. This is factored into the price of our merchandise. We hope you can enjoy these rare finds for years to come, and we want to make sure that when they reach you, they are ready for careful love and display if you so chose, or to be stored in a destruction-free paper. Happy shopping!**
