1858 Round Cage Crinoline

Our price: $7.00

The Round cage crinoline was the main support foundation for the period of 1855-1862. Called a "cage" because of the cage-like appearance created by the hoop wires and vertical support tapes, this type of crinoline offers maximum support capabilities for a perfect shape, combined with flexibility for comfortable wear.

Our crinoline is 126" in circumference at the hem, 36" in length to hem level, and has 10 hoop wires to support the weight of heavy skirts. A "bag" at the hem keeps the wearer from stepping through the hoops.
