Vintage 1900's Grey/Black Duster

Vintage 1900's
Grey/Black Duster This vintage grey and black duster is great! It is a grey/black tweed with black trim. The duster has a black underbodice of cotton with a front hook/eye closure and no boning. The actual duster also has a front hook/eye closure which begins at the neckline and continues to the mid thigh. The collar is a small, stand-up collar which is edged with a small black, white and gray fabric trim. This trim also runs in a vertical line down the center front - along the front opening. There are two wide vertical pleats on each side of the front opening. These begin at the shoulders and continue to the hemline. Each pleat is accented with material trim. The sleeves are long and straight (also lined). They wrist ends are trimmed with material. The back of the duster is nicely detailed. It has four pleats down the center back, beginning at the back neckline. The pleats are sewn in place a little above the waistline, then fall free again to the hemline. This gives added fullness to the back and is a wonderful touch! The duster is in very good condition, but does have some light staining (I have not tried to clean). There are a few very small holes which are not really noticeable because of the tweed of the duster. There is also some minor fraying to some of the material trim - again not really noticeable unless you look for it. The duster is in very sturdy condition and could be worn without a problem. The duster will fit up to a 36" bustline and measures approximately 51" long (shoulder to hemline).

1919 Vintage Black Wrap Jacket

1919
Vintage Black
Wrap Jacket This beautiful vintage black wrap jacket dates to 1919. The jacket features a notched collar and center front opening. There are no fasteners, except for a two self-material ties which are attached to the back of the jacket and wrap around, crossing each other, to button on the back side. A long fringed material panel is attached at the waistland on both back sides of the jacket. These panels are decoratively gathered (similar to smocking) at the top edge and deeply fringed on the bottom edge. The belt buttons (beautiful buttons) are sewn just above the gathering on each side. The bottom of the jacket is weighted and the back hemline of the jacket has a decorative gathering. There is a bit of discoloration on one of the panels. The jacket has long, full sleeves and wide cuffs. Two (2) large black buttons accent each cuff and decorative gathering encircles the sleeve above the cuffs. The jacket is lined in a cream colored lining and has small buttons sewn to the lining as if another lining could be buttoned in. An inside label reads, "Fifth Avenue - Schotz - Powers - N.Y. Company, Inc., 471 Fifth Ave. N.Y., Mrs. A. P. Ruirth, Date 8/29/19 - No. 140. The jacket is in very good condtion and wearable. It measures approximately: bustline=38"; shoulder to shoulder width=14"; waistline=30" (adjustable with belt); and length=27".

F. Carper Vintage Fur Stole

F. Carper
Vintage Fur Stole This beautiful vintage fur stole is the perfect "topper" for any formal occasion. The stole features a turned collar which continues down the center front opening - almost to the hemline. The "cuffed sleeves" add to the fine detailing of this stole. The stole is fully lined; however there is some staining on the lining in the back. I have not cleaned the stole, so it may come out with cleaning. The inside front of the lining has the initials, "ABV" (the B is larger than the A and the V). The initials are sewn into the lining. Two (2) inside pockets are nestled into the lining. A neck label to the stole reads, "Furs By F. Carper, Erie, PA." The stole is in very good condition except for the above mentioned staining of the lining. The stole is displayed on a dress form with a 42" bustline, but would fit comfortably on a smaller bust.

Circa 1830's-1860's (?) Purple Print Cape W/Hood

Circa 1830's-
1860's (?) Purple Print Cape W/Hood This antique purple cotton print cape is a wonderful example of early sewing techniques and totally hand done. The actual cape is simple in design with a tiny print on the outside (See Detail Views). The cape falls to approximately ankle length and ties at the neckline with two simple ties which are sewn to the inside lining of the cape. The front portion of the cape (approximately 7") has no gathering, then gauging begins and continues over the shoulders and through the back (See Detail Views). This makes the back of the cape very full. A matching hood is attached to the cape. It is very wide and begins at the center front opening. The hood is attached to a horizontal band which is attached to the cape. The back of the hood has vertical pleats and folded gathers to create its shape in the back (See Hood/Lining Views). The entire front portion of the hood (approximately 7")is decorated with an attached band of material (7") which has been horizontally gathered, leaving a very small ruffle at the front edge of the hood - this is gorgeous! The workmanship on this piece is beautiful! Unfortunately, my photos don't pick up the detailing quite as well as I would like. The cape is lined with a lavendar/purple/white printed material (See Hood/Lining Views). The cape is in very good condition; however there are some small scattered holes which do not detract because of the color and print. There are also some very small dots of discoloration which are mainly confined to the bottom of one side. Again, these are small and not really noticeable. The upper portion of the cape and the hood is in wonderful condition. This is a true collectors' delight.

Circa 1930's Vintage Cape/Fur Neckline

Circa 1930's
Vintage Cape/Fur Neckline What a great vintage cape! The cape is very lightweight and unfortunately the photos can't capture the design in the fabric. The cape is black and has a horizontal striped design which is created with tiny horizontal pleats. The bottom portion of the cape is made up of wider pleats with an openwork design between each pleat. The collar is fur - I'm not sure what kind, but it is a cream color. There is a section of fur in the center back which is not long, I don't know if this is wear or the way it was made. Either way, it does not detract from the cape. There is a button at the neckline and one long tie below the collar (the other tie is missing). Below the collar, the material is gathered in the typical 1930's style. The cape is slightly longer in the back than the front. It will fit up to a size 16 without a problem. Length measures approximately 49" long.

Art Deco Style Vintage Fur Cape

Art Deco
Style Vintage Fur Cape This is such a fun vintage cape! It is a very dark brown/black fur with a wide collar (there is some wear to the fur around the edges of the collar). The cape fits more like a jacket. It is fitted through the shoulders and has a horizontal fur band which crosses the back of the cape - from side seam to side seam. This band pulls the cape in and creates the look of sleeves. The cape is held in place with two black and gray striped buttons. These buttons have a very art deco look to them and are a nice addition to the cape. The cape is fully lined and has a label which reads, "Furs - Richlind Mfg. Co., Blissfield, Mich.". The cape is very small in size and would fit a size 2 to 4 - maybe even a size 6 with small shoulders. The cape is in very good condition; however there is some wear to the fur along the collar and front edge.

Circa 1860's Yellow/Goldtone Cape

Circa 1860's
Goldtone/Brown Cape This wonderful antique cape comes from a Deleware estate. The cape is done in a goldtone color and is lined in dark brown. The color is not yellow like the photo displays - it is a deep goldenrod color rather than yellow. The neckline, front closure and hemline is edged with 5" trim of brown chenille fringe. The entire cape is hand sewn. The center back hemline of the cape has two flaps which are nicely decorated with the brown fringe. The cape is shaped with shoulder and arm inserts, but the arms are open. There is a brown tie belt on the inside of the cape to help hold it in place. The vintage cape is in very good condition, but it does have some minor staining and a few small moth holes. The material is sturdy and the cape is wearable. It is displayed on a dress form which measures: bustline=37"; waistline=29".

Vintage Fur Stole

Vintage Fur
Stole This vintage fur stole is so soft and cuddly! I don't know what type of fur the stole is made from, but again, it is very soft. The stole is a very dark brown color. There is some wear, but it just adds to the vintage look. The stole is much longer in the front - measuring approximately 27" long. The back of the stole measures approximately 20" long. The collar is slightly rolled which adds to the stole's overall look. The stile is fully lined with a black floral lining. The stole is very wearable and adds just the right touch for an evening out!
