The corset is made of charming old-dusty white silk, with original laces. The top of the corset is edged in a band of finely made lace trim. Embroidered front and chest. The corset is in very good condition, only light stains from storage. An eyelet on the back is slightly torn, but this is not noticeable on.
A special highlight is the corresponding corset box. The black and white lithograph box depicts various scenes starting at the wedding through various honeymoon locations including a steam boat, Saratoga, White Mountains, Lake George, Washington, Niagara Falls and Mammoth Cave; signed on the sides of the box "Bridal Trademark * Litho box by Beatty & Forst Lith. 44 West Broadway”. Measures: 3” high x 15” wide x 3 1/4” deep. The box did not fare as well as the corset. The box is damaged (see photos). It is very rare to find a corset in it's original box, so this would be a nice addition to a corset collection or vintage clothing collection. The decoration is not included.
