Very good vintage shape with minor cosmetic issues, factored into price. Cleaned. 75+ years old.

See photos...minor wear/tear at underarm corners where it's hidden during wear, and the millinery blossom has typical signs of its advanced age. This flower could be "fluffed" and perked up more than I did with the steamer wand, if you wanted.


Our pieces are true vintage with a history and a past life, not newly made reproductions. Minor signs of previous use and age are normal and expected for all true vintage pieces. Flaws and issues are carefully noted/photographed, and our detailed photos give you a good idea of the look of each garment. We're happy to answer any questions you might have to help you with online purchasing.
