Antique Black / Brown Victorian Corset Stays , Corset Ancien , Korsett:
Rare antique victorian hour glass corset made of black / brown polished coton and lined with ecru coton toile. The very special thing is that it has regular boning only in the back (4 on each side) + the 2 large and strong front bones. All the rest is shaped with heavy cording (thats what gives that lovely hour glass shape) and must have been more confortable than the "all bone" corsets. This is a very rare generous size that can be easyly worn as it is in very good condition and seems not much used with not signs of wear. It will just need a good airing or wash as it is dusty and has a strong storage smell
size 16" long in front and back, 15 1/2" at waist measured flat
Rare corset ancien, toile marron, glacée doublée de toile écrue,surpiqures rouges.
Particularité 6 baleines sur l'arrière, le devant étant maintenu uniquement par les deux baleines à oeillet et crochet de la fermeture et le grand nombre de "piqures cordées" très confortables (relatif après essayage!).
ATTENTION : grande taille, intérieur très poussiéreux et forte odeur de stockage. A aérer et nettoyer avant utilisation.

If you have any special request, please let me know BEFORE offerding (I never publish questions containing names or mail adresses) Also, please keep in mind that your item will be send from Europe and that you will need some patience to receive anything bigger than a tall envelope
As far as possible (up to 2 kilo), and unless otherwise required by the buyer I use a low-rate small parcel shipping that usually travels between 2 and 3 week for a reasonable price and can be tracked and insured up to 150 Euro.
The express mail, if travelling only 1 week, starts at 30$ + insurance and requires more complete forms to fill, customs and other...I'm always glad to combine shipping but please let me know in advance when you plan several purchases (to avoid unnecessary packing)
I charge no packing or handling fees and I use recycled wrappings and boxes as far as possible. Indicated shipping price is an estimation. If after packing there is a difference, I refund the exceeding amount, if I underestimated, the difference is for me. Except snow-storm or car-problem I send the day following payment.
Please be aware that whatever I'm listing, (mostly fabric, materials, costume pieces, lace and accessoires to repair) it can sometimes be in good condition but it is NEVER NEW from a shop shelf!!!! (so signs of a former life are often noticeable unless they are described clearly as VGC or AS
there are no major rust stains to fabric and metal
