This is an authentic antique corset for a large French Fashion lady. It came to me with a gorgeous French Fashion gown that was recently sold separately. It is made of a heavy twill fabric that laces shut on one side and closes with hooks on the other side. The lacing was broken and is tied on the inside of the corset, and three hooks and one eye are missing. The corset itself is in excellent aged condition with just a few tiny frayed areas. Here are the measurements:

This chair belonged to a Bru Brevete, and there is a note on the seat that reads, "Bru Brevete / 1800βs / exc...

This is a pretty antique cape for a doll. It came to me on a large wax doll, but it would be gorgeous on a bisque baby. It is lightweight cream-colored wool and it is fully lined with matching silk. It is generously embroidered down the front and all around the hem in a flowered design. The neckline is edged in wide ruched satin ribbon that extends into long ties. There are scattered moth holes here and there, and in back a few are gathered together in one spot (pictured). The ribbon is thick...
