✿ Rare Antique Victorian 1880s Adjustable Wire Hoop Crinoline Bustle Cage For Sale


Rare Antique Victorian 1880s
Bustle / Crinoline Cage / Wire Hoop


I will be selling a lot of my books, patterns and other period costuming stuff the coming weeks. I am so torn having to part with these items, but I am moving to Europe and unfortunately won't be able to take these with me, so here is your chance to get your hands on rare and out of print books/patterns for a very low price. The books are brand new, never been used unless otherwise stated.


Very rarely do you come across these antique crinoline cages now - they are fabulous display objects, and very collectable.

This is a wire-hooped crinoline cage, with wired bustle back, which would have supported a skirt or dress to give the perfect silhouette for the well dressed lady of the Victorian era. What makes this bustle unique from others I have seen for sale is that it has an adjustable bustle back. Tighten the laces and the bustle stands out more for a larger "tray effect" or loosen for a smaller bustle. The long supporting tapes and waistband are made from linen with small diamond pattern, with a fine-pronged buckle to close at the front. There are rows of wire hoops attached to tapes along the bottom edge to hold the skirt out, and another set to create the bustle at the back.

It is in very good, wearable condition, with no rust - just some minor fraying in one spot on the linen tape between the first and second wire hoop on the left (right side in photograph) front.
A rare, covetable fashion accessory.

Measurements
The waistband measure 27", the length 32" front and 35" over the bustle back, and the bottom ring circumference is 62"












I accept PayPal.
Payment required 3 days after close of sale or I will re-list the item.

Thank you for looking and happy offerding!
