1880s Black & Mint Corset

The label inside reads Marie Grochovska, a Varsovie, Faubourg de Cracovie No 39.
Faubourg de Cracovie is now called Krakowskie Przedmieście. It is a prestigious street in Warsaw’s old city, and with such an address Madame Grochovska’s shop would have been stocked with only the finest money could buy. The corset is made of two layers of silk, the exterior a black brocade and the interior a pale blue moire. The maker’s name is also engraved on the busk. | Kent State University Museum

Half-mourning dress (1889 - 1892) by Sara Mayer & A. Morhange, Victoria and Albert Museum

This particular dress has ended up on my blog quite a few times; I just can’t help but reblog it whenever it shows up on my dash— it’s perfect.  This really is one of my favorite dresses.
