✿ Rare Antique Victorian 1880s Wire Hoop Crinoline Bustle Cage New Old Stock Nos:
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. The long supporting tapes are made from linen with rows of small braid patterns, 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.
I think this is a New Old Stock, still has a price tag. It is in very good, wearable condition, with no rust - just some minor fraying in one spot on the linen tape on the waistband side front.
A rare, covetable fashion accessory.
You can really see how "white" and clean the wire hoops are on the last picture with the price tag.
The waistband measure 30", the length 32" front and 33" over the bustle back, and the bottom ring circumference is 60"
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!
