Item specifics

Period: 1940s Material: Chiffon
Type: T-Shirts/ Tops Colour: Black
Size: Various Features: Hand Painted/Couture/French







This is a lot of two French made couture bustiers from the 1940s, these would have been worn over a skirt in the evening for balls and galas.

These were found at a chateau in France, I will include a photo of the chateau and the previous owner.

They are both in need of repair, and would only suit restoration or study piece4s. They are very interesting to see how they were made.

The hand painted one is in best condition, the black one, is in need of repair but includes the original brooches.

No returns on this lot, sold as seen in pictures.

Questions welcome. 

Please study photos and read our policies before bidding. This item will be sent worldwide.

     Thank you for looking and good luck!
