{Edwardian corset for sale}

Photobucket

Try as I might, I just can't adjust this beauty in any way to fit me right. I tried it on over my clothing at the time of purchase and thought it fit, but it's just a tad too big. Unfortunate for me, but good news for you! 

This corset is a "Redfern Stout Black Boning" corset from approximately 1910-1915 (I'm no expert, but this is what I could gather from research). It's in excellent condition, and completely wearable or would make an ideal study or display piece. There are very light small marks on the outside, as well as some brown marks at the garters, though poses no threat to the durability. The most prominent marks are inside, as shown in a photo below. The laces are not original, and can be easily replaced. The skirt under the busk has eyes for lacing. 

The corset is partial bust, with pretty ribbon and lace trim. I absolutely adore the perfect metal garters with ornate design, and dipped front panel. 
Perfect for those Titanic events coming up!

That really is fascinating. I once visited a vintage store in the south of France that had items from around the French Revolution and even before. I just love clothes that carry history with them.
And yes, definitely a Titanic/Downton Abbey must-have!
