Evening bags by Mayor are definitely not thick on the ground. I wasn't able to locate any others online - besides which ours is perfect, apparently never used and still snapped into its glamorous burgundy case of velvety suede that bears the maker's name and logo. The heavy metal mesh is as supple as fabric and lined with ivory silk. The pouch measures about 5" x 4 1/4" and closes with a double chain 6 1/2" long, with beautifully shaped carrying rings an inch round on each end.

If you want a fine early 20th century mesh purse more exceptional the widely available ones by Whiting & Davis and Mandalian, this is your obvious choice. Probable dating is the early 1920s (dawn of the Art Deco era) and provenance is an estate in Florida, where the Mayor's company moved at the height of Deco mania. No jeweler is more closely associated with Deco style than Samuel Getz of Mayor's.

These exciting vintage boots with stiletto heels are a lot more Vixen than Western. Besides the pizzazz of their 3.25-inch heels, they mix three different leathers in slightly different shades of brown: Reptile and suede trim the butter-soft smooth leather that slouches gracefully for a bit of "pirate" swagger.

Representing the height of style in the "Dallas" and "Dynasty" era, these beauties will be perfect with the 1980s revival fashions so trendy today (not to mention with your skinny jeans). They've been so lightly worn that this is how they look without even getting a polish and brush-up! Linings are fully intact.

The boots reached us, fittingly enough, from a Dallas collection and were quite expensive when new. Outer soles (leather, of course) are marked 5B and inner soles (likewise leather) are tagged Wild Pair. Early examples of this fashion-forward brand have become highly collectible. I've seen 1980s Wild Pair boots selling for close to $300 elsewhere online.

Most likely from the 1950s or early 1960s, this fluffy white chapeau is in pristine condition. Even its lining is beautiful, made of luxurious black fabric that's ridged like grosgrain ribbon.

Size is on the small side. I can get it on, but not down as far as it really should go. My forehead is 22.5 inches around and the maximum it would fit properly is about 21.5 inches. Assuming the fit is right for your purposes, this is a marvelous bargain.

Although many of us wouldn't buy new furs now, to avoid encouraging the trade, making use of vintage furs strikes me as both ethical and sensible. If you agree, please run a search for "fur" and see the two pretty collars we have in stock, also at great prices.

Here's a truly luxurious vintage case for your favorite specs or shades! The rich red hues and intricate gilding give it a lavish High Renaissance look.

This exquisite case measures 7.25 inches by 3.5 inches, so can hold large frames. From a New Mexico collector who's downsizing, it received little use, being one of several she acquired in Italy about 30 years ago. Extreme magnification is necessary to notice any surface wear, except a few creases. The cream-colored leather lining is quite clean and the clasp still closes tightly.

I couldn't find anything at all like this online, so it must be a rarity.

Want some gloves that will do lots more than keep your hands warm? How about these terrific vintage designs from the 1940s or early 1950s? They're loaded with Retro style!

The brown ones with the huge buttons and lavish seam detail look like suede, but are of suede-finished fabric. They also look like they've even been worn. Condition is absolutely amazing.

The second pair are of buttery soft black kidskin with cutwork wrist-bands of fawn kid, each secured with a black leather button. Just a few little scuffs are present, and one wrist has a teensy red dot on it. With a cleaning and polish, they'd be like new.

Both pairs are sized for a petite woman and came from the same Texas estate.

Crisp as new, this colorful vintage apron features a delightful pattern of tall windows filled with potted daisies, plus a wide red band at the bottom and a vine motif above. Length is a little more than 20 inches, plus a waistband nearly two inches wide.

It can't have been worn much, if at all, because the condition is immaculate. Probable dating would be 1940s and provenance is a Texas estate.

This darling vintage handkerchief is extremely unusual, in that it has a coin purse built right in! The hanky, itself, is of emerald green linen so finely woven that it's semi-sheer -- and, set into the center, there's a bright yellow, green and white tartan plaid pouch that zips open on one side with a green loop pull.

It's plenty big enough to hold keys and other small necessities, whenever you don't want to carry a bag -- making this perfect to tuck in your pocket when you're jogging, walking the dog, going to the beach or running quick errands.

The hanky measures about 11 inches square and its zip pouch is 4 inches by 4 inches. Provenance is a Texas estate and most likely dating would be 1930s or 1940s. Condition is fantastic. It can't have been used much, if at all.

This fancy vintage apron has to be at least 50 or 60 years old, but looks never worn. It's obviously been stored away carefully, because the fabric hasn't even thought about fading. And look at those elaborate ultra-feminine details: panels of yellow eyelet lace, plus appliqued flowers! It's 15 inches long, plus a 1 3/4-inch waistband, and provenance is a Texas estate.

If you're looking for a really charming vintage apron, either for kitchen use or to complete a 'perfect housewife' costume, you've found it now. Donna Reed, eat your heart out!

2 Extremely Fine Vintage Square Scarves circa 1980

Having recently acquired loads of wonderful vintage and antique clothing from a collector who's downsizing, I got inspired to do a bit of the same. These two scarves have languished in my dresser since around 1980, which I paid at least $75 for each (on sale) at one of the best shops in town. Despite good intentions, I never got the knack of wearing squares, so it's unlikely I will.

The larger scarf here, measuring 26 inches in each direction with finely machined edges, is of an unusual and very complexion-flattering canteloupe hue, between coral and pink, and it has an all-over upraised pattern (impossible to photograph properly) of nubby same-color dots that feel luxurious. The fabric is a cotton so finely woven that you can see through it. This of course means it knots and drapes like a dream, with no ungraceful bulk.

The paisley scarf, 16.5 inches square, is of the same marvelous cotton. Even with its dark colors, it's transparent when you hold it to light. Colors are navy, red and ecru; the pattern is intricately detailed; and the edges are rolled and hand-hemmed.

Both these scarves are in like-new condition and would make marvelous gifts. I don't recall what their tags said; they were separate, not sewn-in, which is so nice. (That way, you don't have to risk ripping an edge, when you cut off the nuisances.)

We're presenting these as a duo, since both are sure to suit the taste of ladies who like their scarves sheer and extremely artistic. Each features as its background a drift of transparent cloud-gray organza that's light as a breeze. In one case, the reverse is tagged silk and we believe them both to be.

The older scarf, most likely dating from the 1950s or earlier, is decorated by hand with a lavish but subtly colored bouquet of violets and lilacs at each corner. Signed Hope, it measures 21.5 inches square, has a delicate machined edge and will look gorgeous over gray or any color that appears in the pattern, including various hues of purple, blue, rose and green.

The other, tagged silk, was produced in the Orient for the Margarita line's cocktail collection. With an exotic pattern of stylized chrysanthemums in dark gold, taupe and gray, it measures 22 inches square and has beautifully rolled edges hemmed by hand. Probable dating for this would be circa 1980, but it has a Late Deco/Retro look.

Both scarves are in lovely condition. On the older one, high magnification reveals a few itsy-bitsy specks which dry-cleaning should remove, but are hardly worth mentioning. Both reached us from the considerable collection of a vintage clothes hound who's downsizing. She wore them with the Anne Fogarty gray wool sheath dress we recently listed.
