    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

    Comment

    This dress is in great condition with no rips, stains, fading or holes. The fabric still retains its sheen and is strong and crisp. The only minor issue of note is that the zipper seems to have been re-sewn near the waist for an inch or so - not noticeable unless looking for it and only mentioned for accuracy as this does not affect the appearance of the dress when worn. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Pat Premo

    Pat Premo was one of the handful of California designers that drove the west coast wing of the American sportswear initiative. She began her career making "little golf dresses" out of superior fabrics like Egyptian lawn cotton, with meticulous, intricate tailoring and dressmaker details. The Pat Premo label was started by Pat and her husband, Bill Schiminke in the 1940s. The label become known for its  unique fabrics and prints and for its well-fitting lines that were always beautifully finished. Of particular note, was her fondness for horizontal stripes which contrary to common wisdom she found highly flattering.. The company ceased production in the 1970s.

    Condition

There is a very large hem on this dress and it can easily dropped to your required length if currently too short. It does not appear it would leave a visible hemline. Belt for presentation purposes only and not included within this listing. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this gorgeous dress.

    Kerrybrooke was one of the house brands of Sears, Roebuck & Company. - at one time the largest retailer in the United States. It operated a mail-order company as well as a chain of stores across the USA. Products sold were mid-priced and often exclusive to the company.  During the 1930s, Sears began to develop its own clothing brands, such as Kerrybrooke, Charmode, Roebucks, King’s Road, and The Fashion Place labels.The slogan for the Kerrybrroke line was Kerrybrooke IS fashion.

     

    Condition 

    This eye-catching dress is in great vintage condition for its age with the only issue I can see is a small iron-on patch on the inside of the dress bodice - not at all visible from the outside due to the print - not sure why this was placed there but does not detract from the presentation or wearability of the dress.  In fact, I nearly overlooked it. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
