Red and black sateen corset, 1900
Red and black sateen corset of 1900, probably German. It has a straight front, supported by a single busk and graded whalebone, and wide flat steel supports down each side.

The corset's bold colour and embroidery show how design and decoration could be combined with technical expertise in cut and manufacture to produce such distinctive garments.

The black flossing is hand-stitched and the top edge of the corset is trimmed with black lace.
