Blue ribbed silk corset. Front view of a corset by Roxy Anne Caplin. It is a front fastening, back lacing, lightly whale-boned corset, with metal petticoat hook. It appears unworn, and was possibly displayed at the Great Exhibition in 1851 or the International Exhibition in 1862. Whalebone is used throughout to shape the corset.
