    Condition 

    Oh my, this is such an eye-catching dress.  Not surprised that the label is a Jeanne d'Arc. As all the dresses I have owned with this label have been quite special. On the most part, they have been very feminine florals or dress with embroidered details, but this one is really unique: both in fabric design and construction. It is in excellent condition for its age, freshly laundered and ready to wear. 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.

    Condition 

    This eye catching dress is actually deadstock with its original hanging tags still attached. It is in pristine condition save for a patch of very slight colour bleed below the waist in one spot. The last picture highlights this. This dress  is cleaned and ready to wear and I must say the area of bleed lightened in the wash. It could very well disappear completely after a couple of more washes. Really not a big issue at all, hardly noticeable.

    Lilli Ann
    This famous American label was registered in 1933 by Adolf Schuman. From an early stage, Schuman imported his fabrics from France and Italy, many of which were made expressly for him. These were acquired from small, family-run textile manufacturers that happened to be in dire financial straits after the war and in danger of closing. Due to his huge orders, Schuman was credited with saving many from financial ruin and, in recognition of his services, was given a Medal of Honour from both the French and Italian governments.  Lilli Ann customers appreciated that their suits, coats and dresses were made from high quality, hand-loomed fabric. They also recognised that the designs were innovative, expertly cut and tailored. This high standard of design was recognised by Lilli Ann winning 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 remains one of my all-time favourites as many of my customers know...:)

     

    Condition 

    This suit is in excellent condition for its age and free from any rips, stains, fading or holes.  The fabric and suit design is rarely seen and has virtually no wear - in fact looks hardly worn. One of the more unusual Lilli Ann designs. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    * Label reads Lilli Diamond

    Lilli Diamond was a popular brand within the USA from the 1930s through to the mid 1980s. The label was acclaimed for its sexy, bombshell designs that showcased a woman's figure and made them feel like glamorous movie stars. The brand was sold in numerous upscale boutiques and department stores, with Fredericks of Hollywood being the biggest retailer, particularly via their extensive mail order catalogue. The label was hugely popular, establishing itself as one of the leading evening and cocktail dress outlets within the USA. This was despite some department stores refusing to stock the items as they deemed them too sexy for their conservative clientele. The label was eventually sold to Campus Casuals in 1965, with the label continuing well into the 1980s.

     

    Condition 

    This eye-catching dress is in excellent vintage condition for its age. No notable flaws that I can see - perhaps a pin prick or two and very slight scuffing - but very minor. Please note that the magenta lining does not need to show in front I just draped it that way because I liked the flash of colour.

    Comment

    This vintage dress is over sixty years old and, although it has been worn, it is in excellent condition for its age.The dress has had some tiny seam repairs over the years, but there is no way of knowing this from the exterior of the dress. The belt appears a fraction more discoloured in the photos than it really is, I have since re-washed both the dress and belt and they have come up very well. Tiniest bit of seam stress on a couple of seams but hardly noticeable. Please contact us if your require additional information or measurements regarding this item.

    Comment

    This dress is in great condition with no rips, stains, major fading or holes. The dress has been taken in at the bust but this does not show from outside.

The dress is shown with an added crinoline petticoat and ribbon for demonstration purposes only and not included within the sale. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Toni Todd

    R & M Kaufmann, Inc was inaugurated in Aurora, Illinois during the 190s.  The owners were brothers who produced high quality but moderately priced dresses and sleepwear.  The company was able to keep prices low by mass producing garments in their own factories.  In fact, their motto was "Only the LOOK is expensive."  Sales grew steadily through the use of full page advertisements in Seventeen, Mademoiselle and Charm magazines as well as the use of live television commercials on shows such as "Beat the Clock."  The Kaufmann's produced under several labels including the Toni Todd line specifically targeting younger women.  The company was sold to Russ Togs in 1969.

     

    Comment

    This dress is in excellent condition for its age and appears to have been hardly worn. Just one issue to point out is that the narrow hem is only pressed down. Although it stays up on its own, the new owner may wish to sew it to prevent future fraying and keep it secure..... or just leave it as is. Priced accordingly as a result. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    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

    The handbag has been carried and shows minor evidence of use: mainly just very slight and small marks....really not noticeable. All in all,  a wonderful, very collectable and beautifully presented handbag.

    * Beautiful example of the novelty necklaces that were so popular during this period

    Novelty Necklaces
    As plastics became more accessible during the late 1930s  and due to the fact that they could be moulded into elaborate shapes, they were ideal for jewellery making. As well as being colourful, they were relatively cheap compared to semi-precious stones - an important factor during the Depression and Second World War. Designs also became more naturalistic, moving away from the earlier geometric shapes. Jewellery designers of this period drew their inspiration from the natural world – flowers, feathers, birds and fruits were 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.
