The original item from FrenchModeVintique is now SOLD.
This beautiful antique Edwardian corset is of the 'straight front' or S form design. It dates approximately 1905-1909. The stocking suspenders, which are integral in the design help to date it.
The colour is a very pale aqua blue, often called 'duck egg' with a soft white stripe. The neckline is embellished with cotton broderie anglaise which is threaded with the original toning silk ribbon. The silk bow on the centre front is still present but has deteriorated in storage. All of the hook and eye fastenings on the busk, and the lacing gromets are present and in good condition. The inner band of the busk has a silk velvet lining, for comfort. This is a sign of a superior corset. The laces in the photograph are new old stock. They are not the original corset laces.
Condition - excellent strong condition with some discoloration from storage. Please note the foxing on the back, left hand side, near the top. There is some slight fading. This is not immediately noticeable but is sometimes visible, depending on the lighting. It has been cleaned prior to listing. Future cleaning should be undertaken by a specialist who knows how best to protect the antique fabric.
Bust 36" + some ease based on the width of the gap in the corset lacing
Waist 20" + some ease based on the width of the gap in the corset lacing
Hips 39" + some ease based on the width of the gap in the corset lacing
This corset is strong enough for occasional wear with care. It is more than a century old, so it should be handled gently. It would be equally suitable as a decorative collectors item and looks fabulous on an antique mannequin.
