Wooden Corset Stay

Measures 8" long.This one has a red lacquer applied to the wood so as to smoothly fit within the pockets of the corset.Mid 1800's.There is a date carved of 1857,initials,a cross hatched fish,some pinwheels.I am not sure that these carvings are period.These stays were sometimes made of whale bone or ivory,but more commonly made of wood.The stays would surround the larger center stay or busk.You are buying an authentic stay of the 1850's period.
