A stunning 1910s Edwardian corset by Kabo, The Live Model Corset delivers the iconic S curve silhouette and is an excellent collector piece. Made of a light tan cotton with beautifully embroidered bust panel that covers the lower part of the bosom. 20 stays provide excellent support with original laces in the back for fitting. This corset extends over the sides of the hips and the top of the bum, and has 4 sturdy and wide garters for holding up stockings. The garter clasps are large with remarkably detailed metal hardware and fabric backed rubber sliders.
WHY IT'S SO SPECIAL:
This corset has never been worn and is in exquisite condition, and was originally acquired from an old dry goods store and has been properly stored since. An excellent piece by a legendary corsetiere, Kabo advertised that their corsets were all made with live models and would never rust. After 100+ years the metal is still shiny and without even the smallest bit of rust, they may have truly been onto something!
CONDITION - Excellent: light age spotting on the surface in a few areas, the largest being a cluster of spots on the right side near the top-back. I have not had this corset cleaned and have not attempted to clean it myself. I do believe this corset can be returned to it's original pristine condition with professional cleaning.
