VINTAGE DRESSES

Stunning 1960s shift dress and jacket by Eastex, in a vibrant coral pink. The pretty dress and matching long jacket are both made from the same crimplene-esque fabric and feature the same toggle buttons. The dress had capped sleeves and darted bust for shaping. Crew neckline and back zip fastening. Both the dress and jacket are fully lined and the fabric has a slight stretch for comfort. Perfect for a special occasion and also as separates with other outfits. In very good vintage condition.


We love this ethereal vintage dress in beautiful cerulean blue. The angel caped sleeves can be worn where they fall at the front but can also be placed over the shoulder for a more dramatic look. Made in a simple shape from a light polyester fabric with a little stretch. Fastens behind the neck with ties. You can also add a belt for more definition. In very good vintage condition with no stains or holes.


A vintage kaftan is the perfect piece for boho glamour. This original 1970s kaftan is in dark green with a beautiful pastel toned embroidery to the neckline, hemline and sleeves. Simple fluted shape with flared cropped sleeves and mid set v-neck. Simple pull-on style in a thick polyester fabric with slight stretch. In very good vintage condition.


VINTAGE SUNGLASSES


Funky vintage sunglasses in that classic aviator shape. Silver metal frames and grey/blue ombre tinted lenses. Measures approx 5.5" across and 2.25" top to bottom. In very good vintage condition.


Plastic wayfarer sunglasses with brown tortoiseshell frames, black plastic arms and black tinted lenses. Measures arrox 6" across and 2" top to bottom. In very good vintage condition.


Super cool vintage sunglasses in teardrop aviator shape with slim metal frames coated in red enamel and brown ombre tinted lenses. Measures approx 5.5" across and 2.5" top to bottom. Some of the red enamel had chipped away but otherwise in good vintage condition.


VINTAGE COMPACTS


This rare vintage compact from the 1950s is super fun and unique! Made by the sought after Pygmalion for the BOAC (British Overseas Airways Corporation) this square brass compact has six colourful travel decals for Europe, North America, Asia, Africa, Caribbean and Australasia, although some of these have rubbed away a little. Mirror and sifter inside and both Pygmalion and Made in Great Britain markings. Measures approx 3" x 3". Clearly well used but still a wonderful piece and particularly rare to have this design with the Pygmalion makers mark. Generally in good vintage condition.


We love this beautiful and quirky engine turned vanity piece from the ever collectable Kigu. This clever little case looks like a mini-handbag with a roped handle and has three components. The top is a lipstick holder, one side opens to reveal a mirror and powder compact and the other side opens to reveal a cigarette case. A wonderfully charming piece that would have been perfect for the socialites of the 1930s/1940s. Made from goldtone brass. Measures approx 3" x 3" x 1". It is well used and of course shows some aging but it still both functional and impressive. In good vintage condition.


We simply love this commemorative vintage powder compact from the Coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Made by Gwenda, it is a classic pocket vanity piece that is suitable for use with loose face powder or as a handbag mirror. Any Royal Family themed vintage compact is highly collectible, especially when it has a name such a Gwenda attached to it. There is no powder inside but the original puff and sifter are still intact. Goldtone metal with a snap catch fastening. Measures approx 3" wide. Well used but still in very good vintage condition.
