    Comment

    The handbag is in very good condition with a clean interior. Small amount of tarnish to metal hardware, some wear to the skin on the body, along with some cracks to skin at the carrying strap. These are cosmetic only and do not affect the strength of the handle, and could be professionally glued or stitched if required. These minor faults are outweighed by the rarity of the skin colour and the wonderful Kelly shape.

    L’Aiglon was founded in 1919 in Philadelphia, USA. As part of Biberman Brothers, Inc, the company’s original label read 'Biberman Make' but changed in 1919 to 'L’Aiglon'. Biberman Make dresses were “wash dresses”, or washable. 'Tubable' was the word of the era. Biberman also made bathrobes and uniforms for maids and nurses. Its founder, Joseph Biberman, committed suicide in 1933 as a result of financial difficulties during the Great Depression. The company, however, survived and continued to make inexpensive but stylish and attractive dresses for women and juniors. During the 1950s, L’Aiglon dresses were used as costumes for the soap opera: The Edge of Night. The company produced dresses until about 1968.

    Suzy Perette

    The Suzy Perette label was a registered trademark of Lombardy Dress (founded as Lombardy Frocks in 1930) and registered in 1954. A sister label to Suzy Perette was the Gigi Young Fashions label (late fifties to 1966). This label followed the same successful style formula of Suzy Perette but as a less expensive line.

    Suzy Perette was greatly influenced by Parisian fashions, with the silhouette of cinched waist and full skirt extremely popular in the early fifties. In fact, the Suzy Perette label acquired the right to incorporate Christian Dior's designs into their own product range- and this dress is a wonderful example!

    Comment

    This vintage dress has been carefully looked after and is in wonderful condition for its age. Remember this dress is over sixty years old and has no significant flaws that I can see. If I am extremely picky there is a tiny hole in skirting above the hem (need to hold up to light to see). Two pin holes on one pleat on rear cummerbund. These are exceedingly minor. The dress looks hardly worn. Beautiful! Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Condition 

    This dress is in excellent condition for its age.  No notable flaws that I can see, apart a small dye run on the front right hand side of dress near hem. Depicted in the last photograph. Because of its small size, and the dress pattern, it's not particularly noticeable, as can be seen in the last photograph. I suspect that the straps have been worked on at some stage due to the inside stitching. All in all a spectacular and beautiful dress.  Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    This vintage dress has been carefully looked after and is in excellent condition for its age. No rips, repairs or damage other than a light discolouration here and there, really not noticeable at all. This is the second dress I have had in this colour and style, so it was obviously very popular in its day.

    Shown with a crinoline which is not included and it is pinned to the dress form to show proper fit.

    Comment

    Stunning colour in this rose pink dress and beautifully made. This quintessential 1950s prom dress, is in excellent condition for its age. All I can note is the tiniest bid of colour variation down the right hand side of the skirt.... not sure if I am imagining it...as I can only see a glimpse of it under certain conditions. Tried to photograph it and it doesn't show up. But just wanted to mention it for full disclosure purposes. I don't think it will be even an issue. Shown with a crinoline and gold braided sash for presentation purposes only and not included in the listing. Would also make a wonderful bridesmaid dress.

    Comment

    This vintage dress has been carefully looked after and is in very good condition for its age. There are a couple of faint age spots, specifically located by the velvet trim on the side of the skirt and a couple hidden within the folds of the skirt. The mesh lining has some discolouration, but it is on the inside of the dress and not visible from the outside. Because of the highly reflective sheen of the dress, the spots are not very apparent but are noted for accuracy.

    Shown with a crinoline, which is not included. Accessories not included unless noted. Please note that some items may be pinned to the form.

    * Marjorie Michael label

     Marjorie Michael established her California based fashion business in 1948 with two sewing machines and two employees. In her quest to design "dresses that enhanced a women's femininity" she ensured that only natural fibres were used in her clothing range, such as silk and cotton.  The fabrics were largely imported from France and Italy. Marjorie never used synthetic fabrics or synthetic blends in her designs. At the label's peak, the output was considered to be equal to such high profile labels as "Peggy Hunt" and "Dorothy O'Hara". Over 800 department and larger retail stores in the USA carried her lines. In the early 1950s, Gracie Allen wore many Marjorie Michael dresses on "The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show.The company went out of business in the mid 1970s.

     

    Comment

    This stunning vintage dress presents beautifully for its age but unfortunately has a recently acquired grease stain on the front mid-bodice section just under the right bust. Apart from that, a couple of earlier lighter and smaller discolourations along with some light scuffing of the fabric but these are minor and not really noticeable when worn. Sold as is. The first five photographs were taken previous to the stain and the last photograph was taken recently.

    Some items may be pinned to the form for presentation purposes.

    Steiff Animals

    Steiff was founded in 1880 by Margarite Steiff, later assisted by her brother Fritz, to produce toys. The very first line was elephants, later joined by dogs, cats, pigs and a myriad of other animals. Margarite's nephew Richard  joined in 1897 and gave the company an enormous boost by creating the teddy bear in 1902. Five years later, Steiff was manufacturing 974,000 bears, and has been increasing its output ever since.

    The company's motto, is "Only the best is good enough for children" and every product is subject to meticulous testing and inspection. The most common materials used in toys are alpaca, felt, mohair and woven plush. Eyes are made of wood or glass, and the stuffing is commonly wood shavings or polyester fibres.  A large amount of the work is done by hand, from the initial design sketches to the final airbrushed paint. The signature touch on any Steiff toy is the trademark "button in ear". 

     

    Comment

    Beautiful rabbit with a quizzical expression. In overall great condition missing its flag but button is there. Steiff animals are very collectable nowadays.

    LayBys/Layaways
    Yes we do offer flexible layby/layaway options and are open to negotiation as to the time period. Obviously, the more expensive the item the longer the time you will have to finalise payment. Contact us to see how accommodating we can be :)

    Special Orders
    If you are looking for something that you don't currently find in our shop - let us know we may be able to help you with a special listing!

    Photography
    Our photos are taken with a mix of studio and ambient lighting. Whilst we take care with the colour balance of our photos, individual computer monitors register colours differently depending on their calibration. If you want the exact colour shade drop us a line and we will give you the Universal Pantone colours that match the item.
