I was incredibly lucky to find this exquisite pair of 18th century stays, they are so rare. They are made from a camel coloured cotton and lined with linen and so beautifully and intricately stitched by hand, even the eyelets are hand stitched beautifully. The stays are boned, but there is some damage to the busk as shown in the photograph. The lacing at the front is original and there is also some damage to this. The ties on the shoulders look original but the lacing at the back of the piece is definitely a replacement. The corset is lined with linen, this has become marked and stained over the years, but considering the piece dates to the late 18th century I think it has survived in good antique condition. I do not have a mannequin small enough to display it on as it is so tiny. They are an incredibly rare pair of stays and wonderful for the collector of 18th century costume. Longer Layaway will be available on this piece.
