Perfect for a 20-23" china doll from the 1885-1900 era, this beautiful set was made to delight an lady of class! With tons of blue insertion ribbon, a wonderful ruffled embroidered edge and that very hard to find bustle back, this all original group will perfectly complete the ensemble of a young heiress or debutant. It simply has that look of panache, wouldn't you say? With rare structural features like a very slim waist on the pantaloons, and the open collar on the chemise, and of course, that hard to find original muslin bustle, when I saw this set, I knew it was something special.
~We are offering this lovely set on our three month layaway plan! Take your time to pay for special goodies for your girls, and it ships for free in the US, with a $20 shipping credit abroad.~
Waist of pantaloons: 7.5"
Pantaloon Length: 11"
Shoulder to shoulder: 5.25"
Chemise Length: 9.75"
Bustle Length: 4.5"
Condition: Excellent. Probably made in the 1880's, this beautiful set has maintained excellent condition with only minor overall wear. The bustle has some speckling, but perhaps these could be removed in a gentle wash- we just enjoyed that perfect antique cream color of the set and did not want to disturb it. A lovely collection all around.
