[Images of a red mantle with black fringe and trim]
When you look at the images of the FIDM Museum Pingat mantle below, notice that the back is cut much shorter than the elongated front. This was a design feature intended to accommodate the bustle, a type of structured undergarment worn under a dress which created a pouf of fabric at the backside. The most exaggerated form of the bustle occurred about 1885. Combining this piece of information with the shape of the actual mantle helped us arrive at an accurate date.
