R&G Corsets - Greenpoint, Brooklyn 2000

Produced from 1898-1901. A white colored jean corset with coutil bone casings made by R & G (Roth & Goldschmidt) in South Norwalk, Connecticut. This era of corsets saw transitional styles between the Victorian hourglass corset and the straight fronted corset of the Edwardian era. Corsets from this turn of the century time period often have straight or slightly curved busks foreshadowing the S bend style yet still retain an hourglass shape.¹
