Absolutely stunning antique Victorian white lawn cotton lace bustle petticoat. Probably the most beautiful bustle petticoat I have ever seen. Made of very fine lawn cotton that features a full wide 23" double layer flounce that measures 130" around the edge. The top layer flounce features tiny pin tuck pleats with a beautiful lace insert. The rest of the flounce features a charming delicate vining floral embroidered design.
Below the embroidery is another insert of lace. The bottom of the flounce is trimmed in a wonderful piece of 2 1/2 matching scallop lace. The 23 high flounce underskirt is trimmed on the bottom with the same matching scallop lace. The petticoat measures 39" L in front and 42-43"in back. The waistband has a tie in back which is adjustable for a waist between 26" and 33".The petticoat has been professionally laundered by the exclusive company Linens Limited here in Milwaukee. There is a 4 1/2 rip coming off the back seam opening. It appears it may have been torn maybe when someone put It on when it caught on a bustle. It is barely noticeable as it is by the back middle seam where it gathers together on the tie.
It can easily be sewn up. Please see photo # 7. This lingerie petticoat would be beautiful under an elegant antique Victorian bustle gown. It would also make a wonderful skirt.
It is all original and of the period. Other than the rip noted it is in excellent condition in every way appearing to have had very little if no wear.
Beautifully cleaned and ready to enjoy. You will not be disappointed.
