Three-part underwear set, ca. 1880, consisting of a bustle dress petticoat, a top and an "apron". We have draped the piece (of which we do not know exactly what it is) as an apron. It ends in two unequal long - wide - bands. All three pieces are made of cotton gauze. Colour cream. Until recently they were in an American museum collection. Very well preserved. Discreet stains, few repaired areas (tears are hardly avoidable with such a thin fabric). Especially the bodice/upper part (more precisely it should be called lower part) is an absolute dream. Very elegant. This underwear was probably worn in summer under an elegant evening gown. Very, very rare. The decoration is not included.
