VINTAGE NAVY APRON WITH DINNERWARE, OLD FASHIONED LADIES & BALLOONS

$ 44.99

What a cute very unique vintage '40s / '50s apron featuring old fashioned ladies, dinnerware and balloons

The fabric is a sheer navy with long strip of lace-trimmed fabric with an old fashioned woman in a deep rose gown with a petticoat and picture hat.  There is a vintage floral thistle dinner plate and cup and saucer, an elderly woman with colorful balloons, a deep blue leave dinner plate an cup and saucer and an old fashioned woman with two basket of food. At the bottom of the apron, the sheer fabric has been doubled.

There is a lace trimmed pocket on the front of the apron with another dinner plate, cup and saucer featuring a ruby colored flower and a gold one as well.  The insert in the apron as well as the pocket feel like bark cloth but I do not know if it for sure.

The aprons needs a pressing especially the ties which have curled around over the decades.  I do not have an iron so I will leave it to the new owner to do.

Care Instructions

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.

Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning. Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower. Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it. The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
