Taylor & Co. Ltd. Cage Crinoline
C.1866-1867 elliptical crinoline made by Taylor & Co.Ltd. It has 20 watchspring hoops. Not as flat fronted as later crinolines would be, but still has most of the emphasis towards the back. Measures 98" around the bottom hoop.
would have been worn as an everyday crinoline, as its size would still give a good size to the skirt but still be small enough to be manageable.
