#6177 - c. 1940's Awesome All Beaded Ruby and Silver Glass Beaded Sandals on Suede! Wearable 6 1/2 US size! Hey!  These fit me!  So what's a girl to do?  "To sell or not to sell, that is the question!"  So, if you happen to see some 5'2" gal walking down the street in these... I'm warning you now.. I may pull them off the website every now and then! :)  So if you want them in the best condition you can get... buy them soon! :) Fully beaded with tiny ruby and silver (with a sage green hue) glass beads with a few white beads at back for a bit of extra "pop".  Lovely leaf design cover the front toes, back straps, and heels.  Dark peach suede straps, lining and adjustable buckle ankle straps.  The leather soles  are stamped "D. Tibajia" and "39". There are more stamps on the sole, but can't read it all that well.  Measures: 9.5" long x 2.75" wide, 2" cuban heels.  Excellent condition with no missing beads.   Gently worn.  These unique shoes might have been made in the Philippines or Spain and are a true work of wearable art.  You will be sure to get asked by some envious woman...  "Oh my! Where, oh where did you get your shoes???"

#6147 - c. 1948 PANDORA, The Halle Bros. Co., Tan Ostrich Peep Toe Baby Doll High-Heeled Pumps! Wearable size!  I hate to show favorites (please don't tell the other shoes that I said I like these best - but I do!) I'm a sucker for bows on anything, so perhaps that is it. Not to mention the great tan ostrich leather, and the shape,  and the peek toe, and the heel height, and the.... yup, love it all!  These came from the same estate as the other 1940's Pandora shoes - all a good, wearable size... and all in great condition.  This women must have had a heck of a closet!  Labeled size 8aa. Looks like they may have only been worn once or twice.  Still fairly stiff without any breaking in. A bit of pinching at my extremely-high instep (I don't fit most shoes).. but for those of you like me.. I know you like to know!  I give the measurements as people ask, but they don't mean anything!   Measures: 10 1/4" long x 2 7/8" wide, 3" heel. Still to go up are three more pair of her shoe collection...  brown suede, green kid and red kid leather.. just in case you want the them all! :)

#6023 - c. 1950's Reproduction of BALENCIAGA, Paris Black Straw Molded Hat! Practically sculptural artwork! This is one of those licensed copies which were often made to nearly duplicate the originals!  It's as good as you can get without getting the real thing.  This hat is a fabulous shape... beautifully molded and in near mint condition.  Black woven straw with a simple black silk satin ribbon and bow at back.  My poor mannequin has molded hair so it's hard to show the hat at its best.  You will look better in it.. I guarantee!  This was one of those pieces that just grabbed me when I saw it.  I love unique design and shape.

#6176 - c. 1950's LILLY DACHE, Paris / New York Black Straw Picture Hat!  Wanna be "Audrey" or "Grace Kelly"?  Really there is only one way - short of complete plastic surgery overhaul.  Unless, of course, you already look like either of my "girls"... and if you do....  I hate you already!  :)  For the rest of us mortals, the only way to have that look is to wear one of "those hats" that will just transform us our most lady-like alter-ego.  How about this beauty?  Black straw wide flat brim picture hat with mid-height crown and black ribbon with tie bow at back. Excellent condition with just the slightest misshaping at top of crown.   Not sure how far off from original shape as I'm not sure it was meant to be perfectly rounded. Fits a normal sized head... this mannequin has molded plastic hair, so it will look even better on you! :)

#4965 - c. 1965 LESLIE JAMES Golden Straw Deep Breton Hat with Mango Colored Grosgrain Ribbon!  Why did hats ever go out of fashion? I love to stumble across some fabulous examples of great design!  This hat is like an overgrown straw boater that went upscale and extremely fashionable. If you opened  a fashion magazine from the mid-1960s you would find that the breton shape looked perfect with the MOD coats of the era. Very clean lines.  This one is lovely... made from a golden straw and eye-popping mango colored grosgrain which can only be seen from the top due to the very deep brim!  Stiff and in Excellent condition.  Fits a normal sized head.

#9794 - c. 1960's Strange and Wonderful PIERRE CARDIN Modes, Paris "Waterspout" or "Chrysanthemum" Whimsy Black Organdy Hat!  In my book, Pierre Cardin was best known for creating the "men's collarless suit" in 1960 which, three years later, were made famous by The Beatles.  OK.. now you know my approximate age! :)  So I'm always seeking out interesting, whimsical, or just plain fabulous hats to sell to you.  I always try to stay away from the "run-of-the-mill" anything! I figure you can find that on other vintage websites. So... what do ya' think of this?   Cool huh? Black voile  organdy twisted and pleated onto a cap base and then "peapod" or "Chrysanthemum" shaped things spewing from the top!  I call it my "waterspout" hat. I don't know what Mr. Cardin had in mind... but I can only imagine he found his inspiration in some water fountain.   Excellent condition.  Just perches on top of the head.

#6144 - c. 1938 BENDHEIM, MODEART Brown Serge Fabric and Leather Peep-Toe Pumps! Small Wearable size!  Interesting shoes in a brown serge fabric with what I call a whirly pinwheel design. I'm sure there is a better name for the ornament at the front of these pumps, but hey... it's late and I'm too tired to come up with anything else.  The person I bought these from called the bi-color, "shades of toast"!  Not in a hundred years would I have come up with that lovely description... but I like it so I'm stealing it!     I give the measurements as people ask, but they don't mean anything!  Measures: 9 3/4" long x 2 7/8" wide, with 2.5" heel. Worn (as you can tell from the sole), but in Excellent condition with the only sign of wear to the exterior is a bit of crease in the front.  A bit too tight for my 6.5 fairly wide foot, but still I think it would be quite comfortable if they fit you.  Always wear interesting shoes!  Just my thought for the day.

#6186 - c. 1830 Faun Colored Heelless Kid Day Shoes!  Straight sole - no shaping for left or right.. I think... or if there IS any shaping it is so slight that it just seems like an optical illusion.  But hey, figure it out for yourself - check out the photos as see what you think.  Condition is Excellent! Other than some minor age spotting and slight dirt, they are pretty much like you'd find them in her closet in 1830.  There is a seam at the back of the shoes (some of this era don't have a seam). I also should mention that there is a pinhead sized hole near the back seam of each shoe.  I'm sure there was a reason for this... perhaps she didn't have a closet and hung them together on a thread through the holes?  I don't know, but the same size hole is in the back of the other pair of shoes I have of this era!  Something for some historian out there to email me an answer. Measure: 9" long x 2" wide.  I love the fact that the kid leather still has a sheen to it!

#6039 - c. 1917 SIMON LUNG & SONS, Wilkes Barre, PA Nickel-Gray Suede Lace Up Boots! Wearable size!  I'm assuming these are about a size 6 or 6.5, but I haven't bothered to unlace them, as I know my fat foot won't fit into them far enough to check out the size for you.  You will need a thin foot.  Condition is fabulous.  Beside a tiny pinhole size spot on the front toe of one boot, I can't find anything else wrong with the boot other than wear on the under sole. Unseen, of course, unless you are hanging upsidedown. :)   You could take to a shoe repair and get a new sole and these would be near mint condition.  I'm a sucker for gray.  I think it's the most elegant of colors.  I have a gray suit dated about 1917 which I should sell with these boots!  Would be a terrific outfit! Measures: 10" long x 2.75" wide.

#6043 - c. 1911 Edwardian Dark Royal Blue Suede Shoes with Original Ribbons! Carl Perkins wrote the smash hit song "Blue Suede Shoes" in 1955...  44 years after these wonderful blue suede shoes were manufactured for some very fashion forward Edwardian woman. Excellent condition... look like they may have only been worn once or twice.  Only issue is that the navy silk tie ribbons will need to be replaced as they are shredding. Any spots you see in the photos were just brushed out of the suede with just the smallest, smallest, smallest, smallest wear on the side of one shoe... Really, other than the silk ties, these are rated 9.9 out of 10! There is a tiny pinhole at the back of each shoe (probably a price tag hung from that?).  You may not notice it at all.  Measures: 9" long x 2.5" wide.... too small to wear.  Great for display!!

#4961- c. 1885 BULLOCK BROS., Chicago Tri-color Copper, Chestnut Brown and Dark Brown Kid Leather Beaded Shoes with Beaded Ribbons and Bows! Rare to find beaded shoes in anything other than light colors.  Or perhaps it's just that I haven't found them! As you likely know, back in the late 1880's, they would wear dark colors as wedding gowns, so these may have been wedding shoes... or just fancy evening shoes. Tri-color copper ribbons, chestnut brown bows and dark brown leather are all beaded with tiny gold metal beads. Measures: 9.5" long x 2.25" wide.  That means tiny and thin!!  Likely not a wearable size. Excellent condition with just a few of the teeny beads missing on one toe. Barely worn.

#4876 - c. late 1850's "Milliner's Masterpiece" Cocoa Brown Cotton Drawn Bonnet Designed to Resemble Straw! So similar to a hat featured in Susan Langley's "Hats & Bonnets" book, on page 71, listed as a "Milliner's Masterpiece" - and given one of the highest price estimates in the entire book!  The bonnet in the book is slightly more elaborate, but certainly looks as though it was created by the same milliner... down to the same cocoa brown color and identical detailing of the curtain shading the neck ("bavolet").  This drawn bonnet is also extensively trimmed with braided loops of a cotton material resembling linen. The bonnet is all original, even the ribbon ties which look to be correct to the era.  There was no interior trim on the hat in the book, and none on this hat.  However most of the lining is gone.   The condition is Excellent for the delicate nature.  There are two slightly larger than pinhead size holes at the back (see photos) and a few light marks.  There are two wires that could just use tacking back to the front edge. The ribbon ties need a tacking as well. I could do it easily, but best for me to leave as is for you purists out there! Other than that, you will only find the most minute issues with the bonnet - small holes in the material when held up to light, slightest fraying and slightest misshaping of back of crown if not stuffed.   Still a wonderful example of this rare millinery treat!

#4533 - c. 1840's Horsehair  (Crin) Spoon Bonnet in a Lacy Concoction with a Bit of the Original Makers Tag! You can find simple straw bonnets, or find those special ones from talented milliners.  Lovely stiff openwork woven horsehair (crin) and straw of two contrasting colored bands in a spiral design lined in brown silk. Edged at front with a straw creating a lace.  The bonnet would have likely had a fabric curtain at the back of neck and ties at front. Has a partial original makers label at the back inside.  The only thing left to read is "...ton and Co."  Still rare to have ANYTHING labeled from such an early date!  There is a stiff white frill inside... don't have a clue if it is original.  Seems it may not be.  The bonnet is in Excellent condition with just a bit of misshaping.

#9825 - c. 1830's (perhaps 1837) RARE 19th Century Gold and Silver Embroidered "Riegelhaube" or "Latch Plate Hood" with hand-written German Provenance from an Eleanore Speckner!  Comes with the Original Wallpaper Hatbox AND 8 Silver Filigree Hairpins! AS RARE as they come, this "Riegelhaube" or "Latch Plate Hood" was the head coverage for the Bavarian region - centered in and around Munich from 1755 through about 1850.  Originally much larger in the mid-1700's, they developed over 100 years to form the stiff classic shape of this one dating to approximately 1837.  What was originally a bow on the downfacing side, turned into a stiff symbol of a bow. The Riegelhaube is made of a rigid rag cardboard basis, encrusted over with silver or gold spiral metal embroidery, beading or spangles (sequins).   It's said that silver was for unmarried girls, gold for married, and black for widows/mourning... though no one is sure of that. However it was known that the caps took 200-300 working hours to create, at the price of several monthly wages! To see the Riegelhaube as worn, I found a painting of a Helene Sedlmayr, from 1831. (the painting is not part of this sale!  Geesh!). This Riegelhaube comes with the ORIGINAL green and red wallpaper hatbox and hand-written German note.  AS WELL AS Eight Extraordinary Krausnadel silver filigree hairpins used to hold the schopf (bun) together.  Traditionally only 2-5 pins were allowed used, so there are two sets here... 3 pins in the round pin set, and 5 pins in the floral pin set.  There is a variety to the pins.  And all the flower pins have tremblers!!   Condition of all elements is Excellent!! The hatbox the only piece showing wear at edges. The silver pins are tarnished as is the gold embroidered cap, but that is to be expected and I will not clean for those of you who want items this old in pristine "as found" condition.  Also listed in 1800-1840s and Museum Categories.

OK... that's about all the French I know even after 4 years of French in school.  Only class I ever got a "D" in!!!!  I still have nightmares that I will be called upon in French class to answer a question.  However, I DO know great French quality!!  Wonderful large woven purse of a taupe and gold lame in interesting design front and back.  The gilt frame is the spectacular part with molded birds (pheasants?), flowers and flower baskets!  Excellent condition inside and out!  Fully lined in pink with the original attached change purse with logo, and original mirror with label on backside.  Really near Mint condition!

#9267 - c. 1920's-1930's RARE and Extraordinary Micro Petit Point (of Pettipoint) Scenic Two-Sided Purse with Marcasite and Coral Jeweled Frame Depicting "J.W. Goethe, The Poet"!  Likely Austrian! According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) was "the greatest figure of German literature as a whole". He was the foremost German writer, scientist, and master of poetry, drama and the novel. This micro petit point purse is Exceptional in quality of design, execution, condition and, of course, the rarity of the two-sided drawing room scenes...  one side depicts the laurel wreath crowning of J.W. Goethe as Poet Laureate, entitled "J.W. Goethe" at the below the scene. The other side of the purse is titled "The Poet" which depicts a smaller scene of a raised glass toast to Goethe. Cherubs and flowers surround the scenes. Measures: 6" high, 8" wide, 1" deep. Approx 14" gold chain. The clasp of cabochon coral beads in a grapevine motif and marcasite is an approx. additional 1" high.  Silver and gold frame of leafy vine motif on front is studded with marcasite. Wonderful color pallette of roses, purples, blues and soft greens and golds on a beige background. Minor marks on off-white calfskin leather interior. Comes with satin change purse with same calfskin leather interior.  I found two coins inside, a 1943 mercury dime and a 1951D penny, so I'm including them!  Don't spend it all in once place! :)  However you spell it... The best of the best in Petitpoint (Petit Point, Pettipoint) purses! Excellent-Excellent condition throughout with extreme minor bending of frame - still closes perfectly with the distinctive click, and even more minor green oxidation of the fabric in the folds just under the frame hinge... unseen unless under full inspection. Both issues are easily remedied by an expert.  Also listed in the Museum Category.

#4773 - c. 1907 SLATTERLY Co., Boston Coque Feather  Bottle Green Velvet Hat with Open Beaked Wire Bird! Is it just me or does this remind you of Scarlett O'Hara's green hat she wore with her famous "curtain" gown.  Extremely rare shape!!  So rare in fact that I can't seem to date it correctly.  I had to call in the TRUE expert to date this hat for me.  I figured it was sometime between 1900 and 1910, but he dated it to 1907 for me.  THANKS! The base of the hat is a stiff heavy turned up brim oval shape covered in bottle green velvet.  Then it's topped with matching and wonderful coque feathers (those are rooster tail feathers) that fall off the back and are tall on the top. It's finished off with a large wire bird wrapped in black floss with sequin eyes and open beak!  The bird has lost some of it's wrap.  Excellent condition with just the tiniest velvet wear inside at the edge of the lining... you will barely notice!

Extremely early example of right and left shaping with the "Droit" and "Gauche" French wording inside for "Right" and "Left"!  These slipper shoes were made for the original owner whose name is written inside both shoes. One shoe with the name "Mme Fane". The other shoe has the first name as well, but it's nearly impossible to read.  It looks like "Mme Fanny Fane" or ... and god I hope not..
