On hold. $95. 

Here's a glamorous masquerade mask from the days long before you could simply grab a costume at Party City. Certainly one of a kind, most likely made by a lady for her own use, it's gracefully shaped with exotic cat's eye openings and sunray forms above. The front is encrusted with shimmering black sequins, all intact, and the reverse is covered with a soft mesh fabric for comfort.

Quite large, the mask measures about 9 inches wide and almost 8 inches tall (extending from the bridge of the nose to well above the forehead). When you aren't wearing it, this would be a splendid wall decoration, framed or not. For tying on or hanging up, there's a fine double cord that feels like silk embroidery thread, but you might want to replace that with lengths of black ribbon or lace.

This would be gorgeous with a black-sequinned Art Deco flapper dress, but may be as early as Edwardian or Victorian and would be beautiful with clothing from those eras, too. Certainly it's very old, not at all like modern rigid masks. Condition is lovely; the only flaws are on the back and they're minor. Provenance is a New Mexico estate.

Here's a wonderful Retro find from the 1940s: FIVE whisper-soft dresses of fine white cotton lawn with pintucking, embroidery and scalloped hems. Each has a different design and the tags tell us they were hand-made in the Philippines. Condition is lovely, despite their being about 60 years old -- nearly antique, by American 75-year standards. Some could use a few stitches along seam lines, but there are no major problems. They could be brightened with bleach and/or bluing, if you like. Provenance is a Dallas estate and they're a steal at just $18 each, with shipping included.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping, with an equivalent discount on international delivery, and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!

This gorgeous collar of neutral champagne-colored fox goes with any color and is large enough to wear over coats and capes, as well as jackets. About a yard long, it measures 7 inches at its widest and drapes beautifully. It's practically a shawl and might be more properly called a capelet or tippet than a collar. Probably dating from the 1950s, it's been cared for so well that it would make a beautiful gift.

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

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping, with an equivalent discount on international delivery, and gift-wrap is always free on request. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos (including views of the luscious embroidered lining). Thanks for looking!
