SOLD 1800s black silk ball gown bustier, corsage, corset top
I adore embroidery and as soon as I saw the work on this corsage, I just had to buy it!
This beautiful, softly boned bodice is in very good condition. It has an embroidered, silk tulle overlay. The colours are vivid as the photographs show. The bodice base is tafetta, which is in good strong, clean condition.
It displays beautifully on an antique mannequin and could be worn with care, or form part of an antique clothing collection. I have displayed it on a vintage mannequin to give an idea of what it would look like on a modern figure. It was designed for a wasp waist so woud be perfect for a mannequin display.
The mannequin displaying it is a vintage size 38.
Thanks for looking!
