    Lilli Ann
    This famous American label was registered in 1933 by Adolf Schuman. Fabrics were specially imported from France and Italy, many made expressly for Lilli Ann. These fabrics were bought from mainly small textile companies that were in dire financial straits after the war and in danger of closing. As a result, Schuman was credited with saving many of these from financial ruin and in official recognition for his services was awarded Medals of Honour from both France and Italy.  On the other hand, the Lilli Ann customer knew that their suits, coats and dresses were made of the highest quality, hand-loomed fabric. Lilli Ann was also recognised for its innovative designs and quality construction. The label received the Gold Medal in Fashion Design, America's highest award in fashion. Nowadays, there is very high demand for this label from collectors and fashionistas from around the world. It must be said that this label is one of my all-time favourites as many of my customers know...:)

     

    Comment

    This wonderful high-end Lilli Ann suit is in excellent condition with no damage, smells or flaws to note. These Lilli Ann suits are highly desirable and becoming increasingly difficult to source. The early label on this suit makes it even scarcer. Wonderful original condition, skirt zipper needs replacing and two buttons are loose. Other than that the presentation is superb.

    Comment

    Can't say enough about this wonderful jacket. It is one of the best Lilli Ann jackets I have owned. I say one of the best because I had an identical one in black several years ago. It is in wonderful condition without any notable flaws. Very rare, desirable jacket. Team it with a black dress, skirt or jeans.

    Comment

    This is such a beautiful dress! It stands between two fashion eras... the neckline and trim are pure 30s whilst the fuller skirt is closer to the 40s. Put together, it makes for a real standout silhouette. The dress is in great condition. The voile is joined in two pieces on the collar along the salvaged edge but this is original to the dress and not a flaw. The black bow at the bodice is added but not fixed to the dress - it will accompany it if sold. The only issues I can see is some stitching unravelling at the waist for half inch ( approx 1cm ) but this is an easy fix and two tiny brown spots that get lost in the folds of the skirt at the bottom to the back. Small blemishes considering the age of the dress. These are shown in the last photograph.

    Shown with a crinoline and velvet ribbon which are not included.

    Comment

    The handbag is in excellent condition for its age with a clean interior - no rips, tears or bad smells. Minute inspection reveals a very small amount of tarnish to metal hardware, light rubs to the skin on the body, some cracks to leather handle, very slight amount of wear internally. These small issues are really not noticeable when in use, the bag presents as well kept, clean and free from noticeable blemishes. All in all, a very unusual and striking handbag.

    Novelty Necklaces

    As plastics became more accessible during the late 1930s and onwards and because they could be moulded into the most elaborate shapes, these materials became very popular in jewellery making. They were also colourful and relatively cheap to produce, as opposed to the use of semi-precious stones, an important factor during the Depression and the second World War periods. Designs became more naturalistic, moving away from the earlier geometric shapes and sparkle. Contemporary jewellery makers drew inspiration from the natural world – flowers, feathers, birds and fruits were all popular themes.

    Bakelite

    The most expensive of the available plastics was bakelite. Bakelite jewellery featured in many of the USA's high-end department stores such as Bloomingdales, Saks, Lord & Taylor and Macy's. The jewellery of this era is now highly collectible.
