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.
