Gorgeous pale pink silk swiss waist circa 1850s-1860s.
Lined with cotton and fully boned for structure, it laces in the front and back and has an inner waistband with hook and eye closures.
I've never come across one in this color, and I just love the ruffled edges! I would love to see the dress this was originally worn with.
+++ Measurements +++
Measured fully laced (no space between laces)
12" tallest height
+++ Condition +++
Lovely condition overall for her age, with minor age related wear:
- Some minor discoloration, inside and out
- Original front lace is missing
Best for study or display due to age of the silk. Wearable with extra care.
