Victorian bustle skirt

Victorian bustle skirt

A gorgeous Victorian antique silk skirt with seperate over bustle, ca. 1885.
Beautiful cream coloured tafeta silk skirt, fully lined and with weighted hem. Two seperate pieces, a 'regular' bustle skirt with a small train and a pleated bustle, and a seperate balloon bustle trimmed with piping and silk fringe. The photos show the skirt without any padding underneath, the two pieces together have lots of volume! 
The skirt has a hidden large pocket in one of the side seams. The waistband of the skirt is very soft blue silk.
The whole set is in great condition, the silk is in amazing shape. The only area that has damage worth mentioning is the waistband of the skirt at the closure, where there is a small stress tear. Missing one hook at the waistband.

The waist measures approx. 59 cms, the skirt has a length of 106 cms in front and 141 cms in the back. The bustle measures approx. 71 cms in length at the back.
