#9793 - c. 1950 JUEL PARK, Beverly Hills from Bergdorf Goodman Nightgown and Robe Wedding Trousseaux Peignoir! In 1929 an energetic 22-yr-old brunette began designing lingerie in Beverly Hills.  She built up a solid reputation as the worlds' outstanding designer of fine lingerie with customers such as Joan Crawford, Norma Shearer Carol Lombard, Jean Harlow, etc. The company continued after Juel's passing and in the 1950's through 80's they designed for Grace Kelly, Barbara Hutton, Liz Taylor and Barbra Streisand, etc. Their moniker reads "Lingerie for the Perfectionist" and are still selling handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces.  This came from an estate with the wedding gown so it was, indeed, part of the wedding trousseaux and the wedding was in 1950.   Juel Park still exists and this set would cost over $5,000 new! Trimmed in beige Alencon lace, ivory silk georgette robe and ivory silk satin nightgown.  The upper back of the gown has a nearly sheer panel for a little extra sex appeal. The lace is masterfully applied! Excellent condition with just the tiniest pindot rust spots and holes on nightgown near armseam and a few very small tears in robe near bottom (again, hardly seen - but see photos of all issues). The ULTIMATE in Lingerie!!!
