A fabulous cream silk Swiss waist or corselet, a belt worn over the clothing and popular during the mid-19th century. Circa 1860s.
Hook and eye closures (missing the hooks). Lined and boned. Wonderful silk tassels from the front and back. Decorative cording resembles lacing on both sides.
+++ Measurements +++
Approx 20.5" waist
+++ Condition +++
Lovely condition overall with some minor age-related wear and a few minor flaws. Some wear to the silk and some staining on the lining. Missing the hook closures. Likely too delicate to wear, as I would be afraid to put strain in the thin, old silk. Great as a display or study piece.
