This is a super rare 1861 crinoline-cage from Thomson Frères, Paris. It is the latest and most rare and unique addition of the Dutch HiLiCoN collection. It is the missing link between Milliet and Thomson. Amazing museum object. Completely hand sewn. I cannot stop looking at it. I bought this French hoop in England. The Ebay description is wrong, by the way.
