Product Description

From the eclectic estate of a vintage clothing collector, a well-known and stylish lady in Historic Riverside, California -- we acquired over 250 pieces from her collection, all pre 40's, to pass on to new and appreciative homes. Items were well cared for overall and have not seen much light in over 30 years.


The dress shown here is indeed one of my favorites from the entire group of amazing dresses, with the large green buttons in two diagonal rows, paired with an ivory-colored tie collar and accents edged in turquoise piping, all on a polka dot and abstract line pattern in black and white.... somehow this creative cacophany of dress design creates a harmonious and sharp result. It's just brilliant! I would give this a date range of  1929-33. 

The shiny milky green buttons are about 1 inch around, and thicker in the middle. They are heavy and like candy...I thought they were bakelite at first but they tested negative, so must be a celluloid or heavy early plastic. There's even an extra one sewn under the skirt hem- a nice surprise to find! No snaps or hooks, just slips over the head to get on and off. Buttons in front are decorative and not functioning- front is sewn up. 

* We show a belt in some of the photos, not included, since the dress does have a belt loop in matching fabric attached on one side (may be misisng from the other side?). 

Condition is good- no shattering of fabric and no MAJOR issues. Will need some restitching along seams here and there. Piping along back of collar is separating and some of the turquoise color on the piping is gone in areas. A couple tiny pin-sized holes were spotted on another inspection, but scarcely noteworthy. 

Please note measurements carefully, and allow plenty of room.

A NOTE to REMEMBER, Disclaimers and Such: IF YOU ARE NEW TO VINTAGE: Welcome! But A kind word about vintage items in general - they are often One of a Kind and unique items, symbols of more stylish times.... That is what makes them so special. They should be treated with respect and preservation, as they are disappearing fast. With that said, Please keep in mind that they are just that - vintage - and unless indicated otherwise, they have an unknown history. Therefore, please don't anticipate that they will look like new unless that is specifically stated. They will likely show previous use, wear, possibly loose threads, small marks, spots etc. that is acceptable to most lovers and buyers of vintage items and are not considered flaws, but character! Please don't hang them on wire hangars or wash them like any new item. I suggest gentle soaking in Oxi Clean or specialty dry cleaning. Please take care of your garment.
I do my best to point out any flaws and state the condition issues as thoroughly as necessary, you can be sure. Please see my long history of Ebay feedback to rest assured you will be put first!
