    Comment

    This dress is in excellent condition free from notable rips, stains, fading or holes. The only point to make is that the fabric may not be as a vibrant colour as it was originally but the dress presents beautifully and the colouring is consistent. I say MAY as the inside seams are the same colour as the outside so maybe this IS the original colour. A couple of very light spots where the ivory background has darkened a tad but hardly noticeable. We are more than happy to answer any inquires about this item.

    Comment

    Gorgeous dress set with the most exquisite fabric. The raised scroll work embroidery pattern is very tactile and compliments the huge cabbage rose garland design. This dress set is in excellent vintage condition with no issues to note other than the buttons at waistband are miss-matched ... leave as is or replace buttons. In any case not at all visible when worn with a belt, ribbon etc. Please note there is no room to move buttons to provide for larger waist size.

    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.
