Which one of your darling ladies is ready for a spectacular new corset? This sturdy cotton corset is a wonderful foundation garment for your most prized doll’s finest garments! Made for a larger fashion poupee, this corset will also nicely fit a bebe, like the lovely girl modeling it. This is one piece you cannot pass up if you collect fine corsets and costumes for your dolls. As the years go on, pieces like these become rarer and rarer as they undergo the test of time, and a corset like this will make a most prized piece for any doll.
It is made from a sturdy brown twill cotton, with lighter tan twill edging and channeling detail stripes, and off-white lace trim along the top. It is laced with a white cord through ten metal eyelets.
Condition: Excellent. There is very little wear, and only some very minor age-related discoloration in a couple small places. The lace trim is completely intact and in excellent condition, and the corset is sturdily constructed from strong fabric.
This corset is modeled on a lovely 21” Steiner “Le Petit Parisien,” who is also available to purchase separately in our shop!

**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!** LBP 8/1/20
