SOLD Belle Epoque cache-corset, camisole, top in soft cotton, broderie anglaise, costumier, film prop, collector
This is a lovely example of a Belle Epoque, cache corset. The workmanship is fine, with cutwork and embroidery. Imagine the hours it would take to make something as detailed!
The shape is very tailored at the waist so please measure carefully before purchasing as I would hate you to be disappointed.
Bust 43" 109.5cm
Waist 23 1/2" 60cm
Length 17" 43cm
The condition is almost excellent. There is a tiny yellowish stain where glue from a label has left a mark. This may come out. I have washed the garment in savon de marseille only. Use the zoom feature to take a close look (top right hand side.) There is also a tiny hole smaller than the size of a pinhead. I couldn't see it until it was against the black silk of the mannequin.
This beautiful cache-corset would be a lovely addition to your period lingerie collection and is strong enough to wear. It may appeal to costumiers, fashion students, museums or vintage lingerie addicts.
Thanks for looking!
