Some lovely things from estate sales to show you. A smooth-as-butter pair of long white kidskin gloves, size 6. Label reads "Aris of Paris Made In France Real Kid 100% silk liner."
These long gloves are black leather, size 6-1/2 and were made by Fownes USA. Also very soft.
Some of you ladies may remember these hats from a previous post. I did a little more research on them and learned that this black velvet number is a "Christine Original NY" and the label further shows "Flechet--Body Made In France." Flechet was mainly a man's hatmaker and was considered one of the best. Unfortunately, they closed in the 1960's. I love the red satin band! That's my mother's mink collar and my pre-WW II Dr. Dress clip.
This perky little velvet number also came with a coordinating hatpin.
I just couldn't pass up this Southern garden party hat at the Salvation Army. It looks much better on the styrofoam head than it does on me, though.
