Victorian ANTIQUE Civil Medici Belt Waist Cincher READY TO WEAR
A lovely antique Medici Belt that is ready to ship right now!
Note by Christine Hall:"Gorgeous Victorian Civil War style skirt. This listing consists of 1 piece: Medici Belt. (No Girbaldi blouse,or skirt shown.)"
Description:Gorgeous ANTIQUE Victorian medici belt /waist cincher, probably dating from the hoop era 1837 -1868. Although it looks like a corset, this is a "snugly fitted belt" made in silk velvet and is fully lined. There are 10 stays for support. It measure 11" from point to point in front, and 12" in the back. The waist measurement is 22" so it is fairy tiny, but there is a little room for a little larger size since it closes with 24 handsewn grommets. NOTE: THIS BELT IS NOT A CORSET- it SHOULDN'T be "Tightlaced" down- even though these items are boned, this belt was made intended to be worn comfortably OVER wearer's cinched corset, plus blouse so there was often a small 1-2" open gap showing in back at adjustment grommets. SKIRT AND BLOUSE are NOT included in this listing. If you are interested in the Costume skirt shown, please view my other listings.
Shipping and insurance will be added to the total. Any questions you might have regarding this outfit are all welcome, and Christine will get back to you right away.
New and Mint condition.
Jewelry not included, unless otherwise stated.
Price is: $99
