c.1910 Ivory Muslin Corset, Size-Large



The corset started in the late1890s and then the entire upper portion was added around 1905 for the changing styles. Rows of ivory silk ribbons and lace run along the top with bows at the center front. Lacings down the back and a busk with hooks and eyes at the top fasten down the center front.  The bust is also padded, but not sure when that was done.

Condition: Some browning from age. The silk ribbons are shattering. One of the padded cups have lost their filling.
