Rare, unusual and interesting antique costumes and textiles; for museums and collectors looking for that extra special piece, for new and established collectors and for those with a modest budget who want to adorn their person or home.


Small Crinoline Frame
Mid 19th c

Most women would have worn a crinoline like this, rather than the huge examples. I do have two examples of large 1860s frames, but not in the best condition. Ask for photos and prices.




Twenty watch spring hoops supported by five decorative woven white tapes, tape waistband with steel two prong buckle.

Circumference  4ft 7 in; 140 cm



There are two metal repairs to the bottom two hoops. Otherwise in very good condition, just slightly soiled.
