I'm pretty sure this is an early example of photo manipulation. This looks like someone took a CDV of a woman wearing a short-sleeve open-necked bodice, and laid over it an image of cage and drawers. That's certainly not a corset she's wearing; it's a swiss waist. Her hand disappears, the angles of the hoop are awkward, and the drawers are all out of proportion to the rest of her body. The awkward cropping certainly isn't original. Any thoughts? ETA: Source is "The Granger Collection."
