$ 40.00Striking gold or dark ivory silk belt circa early 1900s. It features a large flower front and center with rope dangling from it with silk "leaves".
$ 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!
$ 219.00This is a stunning dress from the 1920s, possibly early 30s in the softest, most delicious, black silk velvet. It is tooo small for my dress forms so I pinned her to show her shape. Look at that gorgeous antiqued gold tone beading round the neckline! There is a ruched ribbon of black velvet going down the bib of the bodice which is echoed at the sleeve cuffs. The cuffs have hook and eye closures. There is a slight drop waist with an asymmetrical waist seam for a bohemian, gypsy feel. There is no opening in this dress ( no zipper or snaps or anything, it merely pulls over the head) so do be sure you have room to get into it, per the measurements. There is the tiniest of labels at the back that reads: Cash's, and then a scattering of small labels with numbers on them, various sizes I suppose. Extra small to small I'd say.
$ 229.00Beautiful vintage black wool blend dress circa 1920s. Gorgeous soutache in the shape of flowers on the bodice nd beautiful horizontal pintucks along the bottom skirt hem. Pretty rounded collar and snaps down the front with decorative covered buttons. Snaps at the side. There are loops for a belt but no belt. There are also snaps at the wrists on the sleeves. Medium size, I'd say. No label.
$ 179.00Drop waisted, easy fit, divine navy rayon crepe, this 1920s dress has it all. Buttons up the front with gold buttons that I actually suspect are quite a bit older than the dress itself. Gorgeous coffin pleats all round the skirt, short cuffed sleeves, mandarin style collar, and oh those buttons! About a medium size I'd say, and have I mentioned those great buttons?
$ 60.00Beautiful silk blush colored 1920s slip. Pretty lace trim across the top. Beautiful blush pink, silk straps, chevron cut to the bottom hem. No label. Probably a medium size. This may be a silk blend, I'm not sure. Its gorgeous and lovely against the skin. Slight A shape in cut and meant to be an easy fit.
$ 99.00Absolutely wonderful and charming 1920s day dress. White rayon top with a deep V neck ( someone added a snap at some point for modesty to hold this closed) bordered in a white and blackish-green trim. There's a line of horizontal pintucking all round the bottom of the bodice. The skirt is a black crepe and just has wonderful pleating and pintucking both front and back. There's so much to love about this dress. Sleeveless, dropwaist, easy comfortable fit, and so so cute! Label reads: None. About a medium to large. Please see condition as this beauty does have some issues.
$ 65.00 - Sold OutOne of the best hats in my shop currently. Stunning example of a 1920s true cloche. Its a rich deep olive, not quite forest green. The inside is mesh. There is a wide grosgrain ribbon round the bottom of the rim and then the rest is covered with green quail feathers. Over all that is a layer of green birdcage netting. There is a bow of the same grosgrain that can be worn anywhere on the head you like, front ,back or side. What's even better is this hat lays perfectly flat for easy storage or travel. The feather ends do tend to get stuck in the veil though when you go to unflatten it, so just reach up and gently lay them all down. Measures 21.5" Fits snug.
$ 120.00Beautiful dupioni silk 1920s slip. Deep peach color with lovely ivory lace trim, French seams inside. I believe this is, in fact, French. This would have been worn under a flapper dress back in the day, but would make a great nightie now, or still perfect as a slip too, of course! Rare extra large size too!
$ 32.00Lovely framed and matted print of Rothermel's "The Trial of Harry Vane". Print is by R Dudensing, and circa 1920s, but I believe it was framed later. Matted in oatmeal linen and behind glass. The frame is silvery wood or pressed wood. Measures a hair over 13.5" square, including the frame. Has the wire for hanging.
$ 95.00 - Sold OutDivine little skirt in ivory with ivory lace panel down the front and another down the back. This--or parts of it at least-- could be anywhere from Edwardian to the twenties. My guess is early twenties. What I believe happened here is someone took a vintage dress that was probably heavily damaged up top, and upcycled it by removing the bodice area and adding an elastic waist to make a skirt. I have had several pieces from the same estate and most of them had been upcycled similarly, so this was something this woman had done a lot of, making antique pieces her own. :) Gotta love that ingenuity. There is a space on both sides between the panels. There is no label. About a medium but stretchy so maybe a large would work too. Skirt base feels and looks like a silk blend-possibly with rayon. Or a very very good rayon. You will wear this all the time, such a gorgeous basic!
