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...

This stunning twill silk scarf is titled "Brise de Charme." The noted artist and designer, Julia Abadie, did the graphics work for this, which was made in 1985. To my knowledge, it has never been re-issued.

With a background of a beautiful blue, it depicts, in marvelous detail and a rainbow of colors, a panoply of handpainted 18th and 19th century fans...

Lavished with sequins and beads, this glamorous snap-pouch from an English dealer near Cambridge was obviously hand-made. Its curvy Paisley-like pattern shows Art Nouveau influence and suggests the bag was made before 1920, since Deco designs were more angular. I believe it dates from the World War I era (1914-1918), during the transitional period between Edwardian and Art Deco styles...

Most of us avoid new furs now -- I haven't bought any for more than 30 years -- but I can't justify leaving vintage pieces to rot, unworn. They're warm, for one thing, and we still find them beautiful or faux-fur wouldn't be so popular.

It would be a great pity to waste a hat as glamorous as this towering pile of fluff. The look is positively Zhivago! And it covers your entire head, all the way down to the nape of your neck, so nothing could be cozier...

By London designer Ritva Kariniemi for the Extravert line, this sizzlingly sexy skirt was purchased around 1990 in an upscale European shop. It's like new, because the prior owner never wore it. Of 91% cotton and 9% lycra, it holds every curve and has a powerful slimming effect from the draped crossover front and ruched sides. It finishes just above the knees and you can roll the top down if you want more exposure...
