Amazing 1930's Fashion Sketches
Fascinating lot of 18Vintage Fashion Sketches
Pencil and Watercolor Drawings
Drawn on 9 " by 6 " pages (2 have been trimmed )
Several of the drawings have been done on cardboard and attached to the page.

There are notations on the back of one page. (see photo) Haven't been able to trace theorigin of these sketches but I believe they may be concept designs for the Robert Simpson Company.Reads in part Summer Clearance
One of the nicest is titled " April Showers 1932 " Likely all date from the same project.
The majority of the condition issues (though not all)involve the edges. I have held off trimming the sketches so that the new owner may decide how they would like to do it. I believe that the sketches would look fantastic mounted and framed and would be of great interest to anyone interested in fashions of the 1930's.
There are some small tears to the edges and corners. Some foxing andnumerousother marks both back and front. Used a soft eraser on a few spots and some came off while others onlyfaded. Don't want to risk damaging the sketches and will leave it to the new owner to decide if they wish to have them cleaned by a professional.
Please see photos and let me know if you need a few more of any particular detail. Only allowed 12 photos with the listing but allows me to send up to 5 more with a message reply.
Have been advised that these are "Concept Drawings" where more detailed drawings would follow.
Absolutely unique drawings !!
Will ship next business day by Canada Post with tracking
