Which one of your darling bebes is ready for a spectacular new corset? This underbust corset comes from c.1895, so it is fitting for any of your prized dolls! It is made from lovely pink and white cotton, with an unusual busk front. This is one piece you cannot pass up if you collect fine corsets for your ladies. As the years go on, pieces like these become rarer and rarer as they undergo the test of time, and a rare example like this will make a most prized piece for any bebe.
It is made of white cotton, decorated with pink cotton channeling stripes all around, and finished with white cotton edging. In the back, it is laced with white tape through 14 metal eyelets, and the front has a metal busk closure with three eye and hook pairs.
Condition: Generally excellent. The corset is sturdily constructed, and the busk front functions well. It has some age-related staining, discoloration, and wear, especially to the edging at the top. The lacing is tied together in the middle. This is an excellent underbust corset for your finest bebe!
This corset is modeled on a gorgeous Eden Bebe, who is available to purchase *separately*!

**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 want 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.
