New at Past Perfect Vintage in August, the 1940s Edition


The new additions, all 19 of them, are live at the website, so here's a taste of the 1940s selection.We recently acquired a number of 1940s dresses in good sizes from an Ohio estate, and will be adding the rest of them next month. Up first is a New York Creation label dress in black crepe, nicely done with a beaded and studded bodice.  These New York dresses are always interesting, and almost always well made.This one is no exception. Then we have a 1940s Wartime cotton dress in red and blue paisley with white piping trim .This is a wonderful example of a  war time day dress that could be dressed up or down depending on the situation. It's also in great condition and a good size as well. And third, one of the best 1940s suits I have found since that beaded Eisenberg we had ever so briefly a few months ago, and like that one I imagine this one will go quite quickly.This is a brown Fortsman wool with beaded passementerie cape collar and pockets. It's a stunner in fine condition.  
We have additions in The 20s & 30s, The 18th Century, The Designers - almost all departments. We will feature more here tomorrow!
All of these can be found at The 40s & 50s
