1856 Walking Cage Crinoline
The walking cage crinoline is a mid-sized support foundation for the period of 1856-1866. Called a 'cage' because of the cage-like appearance created by the hoop wires and vertical support tapes, this type of crinoline offers maximum support capabilities for a perfect shape, combined with flexibility for comfortable wear. This cage is in a domed shape, perfect for the years 1856 and 1860. We have added a cincher style belt for ease of wear.
Our crinoline is 110" in circumference at the hem, 33" in length to hem level, and has 8 hoop wires to support the weight of heavy skirts. A 'bag' at the hem keeps the wearer from stepping through the hoops.
