Ladies White Stocking Suspender Belt

Ladies White Stocking Suspender Belt
c.1901. A white sateen belt with a forked bottom stocking suspender hanging down each side of the leg. It would have been worn over the corset.
This is an older style of suspender which were sometimes worn in the 1870's and onwards. The stocking clips are spiked to hold onto the stockings, and the forked ends of each long elastic suspender clip onto the outside of each stocking. The belt is boned with whalebone and fastens at the front with a linen covered button. Waist is 30".
