The stomacher was an essential part of women's gowns, from about 1570 to 1780. In its most basic form it was a long V-or U-shaped panel that decorated the front of a woman's bodice. The stomacher could either be part of the bodice or a separate garment that fastened to the bodice. The stomacher had two main purposes: to add decoration and to provide structure. Both decoration and structure changed with passing fashions over the long history of this garment.
This stomacher is an embroidered stomacher, ca. 1720. Worked in coloured silk and metallic threads. The stomacher is a decoration stomacher for a rococo dress. Very good condition. One stain/slight mark on left side. Mould marking more visible from the back. Hardly visible from the front. Very rare to find.
