Antique Victorian Silk & Velvet Ladies Bodice Top

This is an antique Ladies bodice from the Edwardian or Victorian era. Dates anywhere from the 1890's to 1910? It is an off black or gunmetal colored silk fabric with a dark navy blue (almost black) velvet accent fabric. This garment has 12 original blue velvet covered buttons - only one button is missing. White crochet trim around the collar, in great shape.

There is sewn in boning in this bodice along the front and sides.  I can't find any wear, splits or holes anywhere on this - only wear on the velvet buttons and a little on the cuffs and very minor discoloration of the fabric in spots - overall I'd say this is in remarkable condition for its age!  This would be perfect for a gothic modeling shoot or to add to your Victorian collection.

The sizing is such that it could fit a modern-size woman.  You should have a 31-32" bust and 21-22" waist to wear this.
