Floral gold tone brooch pin with dark blue stones from the 50's. Depending on the light the color changes from a lighter blue into a deep sea blue. All stones secure. Safety Pin closure on the back. Beautiful eye catcher.
Classic brooch from popular vintage designer, Sarah Coventry. Featuring a gold tone brooch with two twisted ropes that encircle elongated leaves and accented with a polished jade green stone and a white pearl ball bead. Signed in the back. Closes with a hinged pin stem and rotating C style safety clasp. Very well made and just lovely!
This pretty little bag is roomier than it looks. Soft-sided with a sturdy underlay, so that it can expand quite a bit when filled. Features a goldtone metal frame with unique top clasp closure, small handle attached to the closure itself. Lined in champagne taffeta. Tag reads "HL USA".
The bag is 7" tall without the handle x 7'' wide. I will open up to 6" deep.
Handle drop length 5''.
Good to Excellent Vintage Condition, scratching around the metal frame,
A really wonderful 1950's cocktail dress in shimmering copper taffeta. Sleeveless bodice with square neckline. Dress has a fabulous full skirt with gathered and draped panels. There is an attached sculptural mesh under layer inside the top half of the skirt (not like a hip pannier, but a stiff nylon mesh with a curved, bound hem) that gives the gathers the proper shape when worn. We have also shown it here with a crinoline... not included). Side metal zipper.
Lining: Sculptural mesh
(Hemmed about 4'')
BEST FITS: XS, S or M (see measurements)
CONDITION: In good to excellent vintage condition. Some underarm marking... mostly at the right side (fortunately the color and sheen of the taffeta masks it a bit). Some seam stress. Perspiration mark above the waistline. There are two watery type stains in the gathers on the front skirt. A pin hole on the rear bodice. A small discoloration inside the strap. All in all the dress still presents beautifully.
Absolutely adorable pussy bow blouse with purple dots allover. Mother-of-pearl buttons down the front. Round collar. The straps for the bow are attached to the collar with buttons and can be removed if desired. Blouse comes with the original tags from the 50's inclusive washing instructions. Wear it with your favorite pencil skirt or your favorite pair of jeans. Just lovely!
