$ 999.00This is a stunning piece of Victorian furniture. From the later 1800s. I am lucky enough to know some of the provenance on this piece and it was originally in a "house of ill repute" in Cripple Creek Colorado. It is handcarved darker wood with a cameo back. Believe it's walnut but not positive about that. The pink velvet is not original, it was reupholstered sometime in the 1980s. Please note shipping info below the measurements.
$ 259.00Stunning Russian samovar for making coffee or tea, circa ate 1800s or early 1900s. Has numerous Russian stampings on the front that would really shine if this were polished up. Charmingly worked spout. I am not familiar with how these work, but a friend is and she told me all the parts and pieces are here and it should work fine. I am not guaranteeing that however, so it is sold as is. If that's very important to you and you know how this works, please ask any questions before purchase. Measures just about 20" at its tallest, including the lid and just about 14" wide including the handle and spout.
$ 65.00Beautiful white cotton Victorian/Edwardian petticoat. Loose Crochet scalloped edge hem with pintuck ruffles in a two layers. Drawstring waist so its really a flexible, comfortable fit. Would make a great boho skirt
$ 40.00 - Sold OutStunning faux antler vanity hand mirror. Circa early 1900s. Features a cameo of a woman's head and neck on the back in sterling silver. It does have Sterling marked, very small, right behind her head, and it does polish nicely. The mirror is in pretty much perfect shape, no silvering or chips . About 10.25" long and just under 5.5" wide at the widest part.
$ 96.00Utterly lovely black mourning skirt from the early 1900s, possibly late 1800s. Fine mesh fabric, unlined. Perfect pintuck pleats all round the waist and each one is tacked down to just below the hips so it really holds its shape. The waistband is reinforced inside with a wide ivory grosgrain band. Heavy duty hook and eye closures which are probably meant to go up the back due too the way the pleats come together below it, but I've shown it here at the side. Small size I'd say.
$ 30.00Beautiful baby dress in white cotton circa early 1900s. French seams, two real shell buttons in the back. High empire waist, short cap sleeves made of fluttery handkerchief edged swiss dot trim. There are rows of pintucking all round the bottom of the skirt and then gorgeous cutwork below that. Delicate lace at the neck. Just beautiful!
$ 289.00Stunning Victorian mourning shawl or cape. Just dripping in jet beading. Lace trim, high neck, pretty swooped hem trimmed in black lace. Hooks and eyes all down the front. It used to be lined in silk but most of that is gone now. No label. Pretty much one size fits most I'd say. I absolutely adore this and have been holding on to it for quite a while. Please see condition below. I will be shipping this with insurance and great care so shipping may be a few dollars more than my usual.
$ 16.00Darling framed print of Victorian fashions. Godeys was a premiere fashion magazine during the 1800s. These prints were often cut from the magazine and framed. This one is from 1872. The frame is newer I believe, though still quite old, wood painted with gold. Measures 5.5" tall and 4.5" wide, including the frame. Has the wire for hanging.
$ 399.00Super special and still quite wearable. This dress is right from the earliest 1900s. Oatmeal colored, heavyweight, nubby textured natural fabric, feels like a cotton/linen barkcloth. Embellished with beautiful oatmeal colored crochet lace at sleeve cuff and along the neckline. There are also numerous little crochet appliques stitched in various places. You can see some of the areas where this was sewn by hand, but some of it is early machine sewn. There are still some of the original hook and eye closures remaining but others have been replaced with more contemporary ones, and I do not believe the buttons at the waist are original either. It is unlined, and there is no label. Many of the seam edges have been finished with an extra layer of light cotton or musllin to keep them from unraveling :) . Small to extra small.
$ 49.00Lovely white cotton drawers circa early 1900s. Closed leg and crotch, very pretty frilliness round the leg cuffs complete with pintucks, lace trim, and green satin ribbon. Side button. Medium size. No label. Extra small, I'd say.
$ 48.00Just beautiful Edwardian girls dress. Probably one of a couple of layers. The skirt is a green silk, and looks to have been made from an Indian sari, or the fabric for one at least. The bodice is an ivory muslin, trimmed in ricrac. Sleeveless, tank style. There are hook and eyes down the back (they look newer as though they were replaced at one point)There is no label. Please refer to the measurements I've given below for sizes.
$ 68.00Stunning example of an Edwardian girls dress. Cotton lawn with what looks like hand crocheted lace trim. Empire waist, 3/4 sleeves, semi squared off neckline, gorgeous pintucking all down the front of the skirt and really pretty crochet trim at cuffs, hem, neckline, waist and down the front. The skirt is a double layer, the bodice is unlined. There are hook and eyes down the back (they look newer as though they were replaced at one point)There is no label. I'm not very good at sizing girls dresses, but this is for an older child, not a toddler and certainly not a baby. Please refer to the measurements I've given below.
$ 69.00Gorgeous snow white cotton Victorian corset cover with lace ruffled front trim. Lovely fabric buttons up the front. There is a tiny peplum of lace. And the shoulders are edged in lace. High neck. This would be a darling top today! Its is very small, so petite it would not fit my dress form, so I pinned it to show the shape.
$ 44.00Gorgeous salmon pink pettipants, with beautiful medallion embroidery on the legs. Side button. Medium size.
