Dreweatts and Bloomsbury Auction. Put the date in your Vintage Diary!



 As I mentioned in a previous post (here) I have been gathering some beautiful textiles for the forthcoming auction in Bristol  on Tuesday the 3rd of April 2012.


 Here is a taster of some of the items to be included in the sale. Please note that they may not be lotted as they are shown here. The auction will be shown on line where you will be able to ascertain which items are in their specific lots.


 As well as trimmings, there are Toiles, Passmenterie, beadwork, Samplers, Tapestry, Quilts embroideries, Floral fabric covered boxes and lengths of unused Vintage Dress fabric....



Patchwork pieces......




..lengths and lengths of gold and silver lace.........



More lace... veils...stomachers....


silk flowers for trimming hats...


A 1920's beaded dancers veil, head dress and matching rings and bracelets...




 An amazing velvet bejeweled dress from the 1950's. (above) with an interesting provenance in that it comes from the famous and wonderful BBC (now defunct) costume department. I would love to know which production it was used in?


 These trimmings originate from the same place, some of the colours on the beaded items are breathtaking.


So, don't forget to make this a date! See you at the sale! Click here to reach the website for full details.
