These are from my personal collection and are a set of stunning blue Moire silk stays dating to the 18th century, circa 1760. They are in good antique condition considering the age of them with minor wear to them. The silk does have some small holes and some splits which I have included in the photographs. I am limited on the listing as to how many photos I can upload so if you would like more then I will only be too pleased to send you some. The corset is tiny and is made from blue moire silk which is unusual, it also has simple gold thread embroidered detail. The boning at the front is intact. The shoulder straps do not have fasteners. The corset is lined with linen and does have replacement lacing. The garment is all hand stitched. It is a beautiful and rare piece and I am selling as I am focusing more on collecting 1920's costume. They will be sent fully tracked and insured.
