A spectacular piece of history, this antique corset is a beautiful foundation garment for your best cabinet sized doll! It is wonderfully constructed, with beautiful detailing. The lucky doll who receives this corset will be the envy of your collection!
Length of Corset: 2 ¼-2 3/4”
The corset is made of white cotton, with pink cotton channeling stripes, with the five at the front overlapping one another, two white cotton straps with buttonholes at the ends at the back, and four white buttons on the front and sides. The corset fastens by fastening one of the straps to one of the buttons on the sides, with the other strap tucked under the corset.
The corset is being modeled by a lovely 16” Turned Shoulder Head Kestner, who is also available for sale *separately* on our site!
CONDITION: The fabric is in generally excellent antique condition, with some minor age-related wear and discoloration. It appears to have had straps that were removed at one point, as some material remains sewn to the corset, and a fifth button may have also come off, as there is loose thread matching the position of a button on the other side.

*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. Happy shopping!* 5/29/20
