This Victorian era accessory was used by wealthy ladies to hitch up their long skirt or petticoat when stepping over a wet or muddy portion of the street. The skirt lifter was helpful, as the streets were not so clean and dry back then. It works with a pull of the ribbon, which raises the floral ornament at the center, allowing the clamps to close onto the fabric at the bottom of the skirt. The ribbon alone may or may not be from the period. This lifter measures 6 inches long. The design features a lovely flower, with leaves and bulbs. Its condition is excellent for its age. This is a rare find for anyone who appreciates Victorian dress.
