Ladies Stiff Collar

Ladies Stiff Collar
C.1900. Stiff high standing collars worn with shirtwaists were the epitome of the Gibson Girl era. They are hard to find as they were hard to clean, wore out and got thrown away. This one managed to survive.
It's made out of stiff linen which would have been heavily starched. Hand embroidery decorates the edge of the collar. Measures 2" wide and would fit a 12 1/2" neck.
