Ladies pair of jumps
From the seller:
I am offering a wonderful late 18th century adult woman's pair of jumps, or soft stays (corset), today. They are in wonderful condition, as shown, a very rare survivor of utilatarian working womans wear. Entirely hand stitched, the outer layer being a wonderful early indigo resist print cotton, with coarse linen lining, pieced as shown int he pictures above~ please click to enlarge them! THis type of soft stay, or jumps, were worn at home before dressing , and for lower class working women, they were worn with a shirt gown over a skirt. Hand stitched eyelet holes at the front closing, with front edge bound in silk, with much wear as shown. Measures 18" from shoulder to hem. ****NO RETURNS**** so please bid accordingly, and feel free to ask me any questions! What you see above, is exactly what you will receive :) These are very rare, and offered with no reserve~ dont miss them!
Based on the print, I'm thinking 1790's for these jumps. They would just then be falling out of fashion for the higher regency styles. Transition jumps!
