    Beautiful! It all looks great!
    That black coset is to die for ,as is the red one.
  3. Wow!! Really fabulous things!!!! Like Hollis, I love the black one, it looks spectacular in the display next to the black advertising mirror.

    I must agree with you both, the black one is my fav out of my collection too :)
    The mirror is the original advertising mirror for it too!

  5. I meant to ask you Lei, are the other items in the exhibit (advertisments, etc.) all yours also????

    Lei - everything looks fabulous - just perfect! I especially love the black corset with the mirror - what a wonderful tableau.

    Hats (and corsets!) off to you!

    LOL, I ran out of chemises so I had to use the corset covers as chemises ;) The silk one is just out of the picture in the big display case on the ground floor, I paired it up with my 1920 cluny lace corset.

    The massive ones hanging up were the museum's from an old exhibit they had in the 80's but the small ones displayed with the corsets are mine as are the stereoview photos. Some of my ads are originals and some are photoscopies of ads in my collection which are too fragile to keep out.
    The museum laminated the copies for free too!! whoo hoo!

    Jonathan, the satin corste is ALL MINE!! :D That one almost went missing with Parcelfroce last August. They never tried to deliver it to me and then had the nerve to send me a letter a month later saying they were sending it back if I didn't come to collect it within 7 days. To rub salt in my wounds, I got charged £50 duty too!

    The turn of the century ladies riding underpants with the built in corselet I bought from you last year are also on display too :)
