GORGEOUS VINTAGE RALPH MONTENERO FOR BLANCHE SAKS FIFTH AVENUE PEIGNOIR & QUILTED BED JACKET SET SPRINKLED WITH PANSIES
A very feminine peignoir & nightgown set by the wonderful Ralph Montenero for Blanche sold at Saks Fifth Avenue.
The set is in a creamy white sprinkled with lilac & lavender pansies. This vintage set is exquisite as one would expect from Ralph Montenero & Saks Fifth Avenue. The bed jacket peignoir is quilted with a ruffley pleated collar which travels down the front of the bolero bed jacket, around the hem and encircles the ends of the sleeves. There is tiny white scalloped braid on the pleated ruffle. Tiny spaghetti ties for closure.
The bodice of the nightgown is pleated as well with a deep plunge on the sweetheart neckline. It also has scalloped lace surrounding the bodice as well as the lowered back & ties with a bow in front. The entire gown is composed of hundreds of sharp very tight crystal pleats for a gorgeous look.
An absolutely stunning peignoir & nightgown set by Ralph Montenero from Saks Fifth Avenue sprinkled with pansies.

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.
