$ 999.00 - Sold OutThis 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.
$ 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".
$ 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
$ 96.00 - Sold OutUtterly 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.
$ 65.00Lovely set of seventeen spoons from WM Rogers & Sons, made in 1900. This is the Sultana or Shell design. There are seven soup or table spoons and ten teaspoons. Stamped on the underside with WM. Rogers & Sons AA. I like the look of silver when it tarnishes so I've left it but these would polish up beautifully, I'm sure. Listing is for all seventeen pieces pictured, but because it is an odd number I am willing to break up the set. Please convo me if you'd like just one or a few pieces and we can set that up.
$ 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!
$ 26.00Elegant brass cabinet or perhaps drawer pulls from the earlier part of the 1900s. Gorgeously repoussed with scrolls and swirls. This is an interesting pull, I haven't seen others quite like it. They resemble a Chippendale style somewhat but with a drop pull instead of the typical swan neck pull. But, and here they differ yet again, they are meant to be hung vertically, not horizontally. So the longer sides go up and down. That way the pull hangs down. One could put them on horizontally as well but the pull will go from side to side that way . Listing is for the pair. Measures about 5.5" long. Stamped on the back of the drop with C&A and something I can't make out as its been rubbed away mostly. On the back of the plate itself is Made in England. If you are familiar with this hardware, please don't hesitate to msg me as I'm not an expert on old hardware and I'd love to learn more about these.
$ 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.
$ 45.00Beautiful white cotton Victorian or Edwardian petticoat, Gibson Girl shape with its flat front and gathered sides and back. Lace hem and trim with embroidered panels in between. Drawstring waist so its really a flexible, comfortable fit. Would make a great boho skirt.
$ 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.
$ 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!
$ 44.00 - Sold OutGorgeous salmon pink pettipants, with beautiful medallion embroidery on the legs. Side button. Medium size.
