L. 1890s Victorian French Couture Silk Cape in Faille and
Lace by E. Pasquilier, & R. 1920s Black Satin Vintage Dress with Deco Inspired Green and Gold AccentsHow often will I ever handle a rare c. 1912 Agnes suit? Or a French cape from the 1890s? A 1948 Dior dress? In the last 20 years, I've sold over 2300 dresses, more than 800 hats plus loads of coats, accessories, blouses,sweaters, menswear, etc. The vast majority of these are examples I will only see once. I try to really look at them while I can, see what makes them special, and then let them go on to appreciative homes.
But as a former collector myself ( I had to choose to devote space either to inventory or collections,which was very hard) I still rather envy the collectors out there who devote themselves to the effort!
