ITEMS FOR SALE

  1. SOLD  Classically elegant Boucher goldtone brooch dating to 1948.  Good condition.  £25.00+ p&p

2. This is a dress from my personal collection but one that my boobs are never really going to feel comfortable in. A rare 1930s corduroy day dress with art deco pockets and beautiful pleating in the bodice and the skirt.  It has a side zip as well as buttons.  Belt loop but no belt. It is a true rich maroon, some of my pictures are making it look lighter.  Any marks are fluff on the material.  It comes with a little tartan neck bow which I took off.  The label shows Letty Lynton, Melbourne.  As the film of the same name starring Joan Crawford came out in 1932, this and the detailing leads me to think that the late 30s is the correct era for this dress although I could of course be wrong. It hangs beautifully and would look spectacular on the right figure.  The pockets are to die for and what made me buy the dress in the first place.  Plus it matches the colour of our vintage car.

Measurements are as follows (please compare with a similar garment that fits you:
Bust  40″ (I moved the buttons over slightly)
Waist  30″
Hips  44″  approx.
Shoulder to waist  14″
Length  47″
Asking less than I paid for it – £80 plus p&p

3.  Fabulous brooch signed Calvaire.  Very rare brand dating from WW2.  Some tarnishing to small flower petals and loss of lucre on faux pearls but extremely pretty and wearable.  £55.00 + p&p

4. Another unusual and rare brooch signed Shiavon Bijoux.  Good use of rhinestones to make this boat brooch really pop.  £55.00 + p&p

5.  Vintage glass beaded necklace from Kenneth J Lane.  Black strand has a cheeky white bead just off centre and the white strand has a black bead.  Looks striking on  £30.00 + p&p
