'Oktis' Corset Shields

What a find!! Here we have a wonderful item for collectors of corsets/corset history - the full package for Oktis Corset Shields, waist 24". By looking at the corset illustrations, the date is around the turn of the 20th century. You can view the V&A example here.

The fabulous thing is that the complete packaging has survived; both shields, outer envelope and advertising leaflet. All is in mint condition.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! The New Year is almost upon us, one of my favourite times of year!!
