Buenos Aires, Argentina.

1880s Black & Mint Corset

The label inside reads Marie Grochovska, a Varsovie, Faubourg de Cracovie No 39.
Faubourg de Cracovie is now called Krakowskie Przedmieście. It is a prestigious street in Warsaw’s old city, and with such an address Madame Grochovska’s shop would have been stocked with only the finest money could buy. The corset is made of two layers of silk, the exterior a black brocade and the interior a pale blue moire. The maker’s name is also engraved on the busk.
