This is one of many bustles I have. These bustle hoops were worn during the 1870s to 1880s, the height of the true bustle period.
This would be worn with a petticoat and pantaloons to get the full effect of wide skirts for fashion purposes. This bustle has been loved and shows wear and some bending and misshapen wires. Much of the fabric has worn off covering the wires. It has a lot of dirt and smudges on the fabric.No enclosures - this is safety pinned together. Please look at photos closely. Even wirh much wear and love, this is a wonderful addition to any early clothing collection. All sales are final as I do my best to accurately describe every item.
I will be listing more gowns and Victorian things over the next week or so. Please check my other auctions!
