1881, American wool, linen, silk, mother-of-pearl Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection at the Met

Evening Dress, 1884–86. American or European. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Gift of Mrs. J. Randall Creel IV, 1963 (C.I.63.23.3a, b) | The bustle, which took hold in the 1870s, was at its most exaggerated extension by 1885. At its extreme, it was almost perpendicular to the small of the back. It was a popular conceit that the cantilevers of these bustles could support an entire tea service. #OneMetManyWorlds
