Vtg Wwii 1930s-40s Satin Bridal Wedding Peignoir Negligee Robe Nightgown Med/lg For Sale
This set it gorgeous and should clean up very nicely with a professional cleaning. The lace is all in exellent condition with no picks, the robe has bishop sleeves with a row of lace just above each cuff and the shoulder pads in the robe are in excellent condition.
The two holes in the robe are about half the size of the head of a straight pin, if that. I took these pictures a couple of months ago and even thought I knew right where to look for the holes, I had a really difficult time finding them even using the pictures as a "map". The light yellowish spot on the bottom/back of the nightgown is so light I can't even find it now to describe the size but I do know it's there, so I mentioned it for the sake of honesty. The spots under the back of the collar on the robe don't show and they're very light anyway, and should come out when the ensemble is professionally cleaned. The bow on each side of the bodice of the nightgown will need a couple of stitches in each to tack the second half of the bow back in place.
The lace is all in excellent condition with no picks, the robe has bishop sleeves with a row of lace just above the cuffs. This is truly a beautiful set that any woman would love to wear on her wedding or any other romantic night. This really just needs the button, the bows re-tacked (literally two stitches in each) and to be professionally cleaned and it will be just like new.
The maker's label identifies it as Original Bridal Ensembles Maxan Negligees but I don't see a size tag, so please use the measurements, which I only took on the nightgown. If that fits, the robe certainly should but if you need other measurements taken, I'm only an email away! The waist measurement was taken right at the bottom of the waist seam "v" in back of the nightgown and the hip measuement was taken approximately 9" below that. The underarm seam to underarm seam does not take into account all the gathers in the top and bottom of the lacy bustline.

TERMS OF SALE
Please make sure when buying clothing that the garment will fit you. Take your measurements or measure something you have that fits you well in the same areas in which I measure. Returns will not be made because something doesn’t fit you, or for color variations due to a difference in monitors. Buyer’s remorse purchases are not returnable. I do, and will continue to ask for pictures. A professional cleaning or laundering is always recommended. I am not responsible for the odor of clothing, since I am not the original owner and most of it has been in storage for decades. I do not know the original owners, nor am I aware of what their habits were.
Any jewelry or undergarments used in the photographs are not included in the sale.
International buyers, most of the time, I like to ship to you via Priority International mail but I will ship International First Class in most instances if you request that option via email. If you do, however, you understand and agree that the package will probably take longer to reach you and it cannot be tracked or insured, so if it's lost or damaged in shipping, your costs will not be refunded. By requesting International First Class, you agree not to hold me responsible in the event these things occur. I am not responsible for your nation’s customs fees, so you'll have to take care of that yourselves and please don't ask me to list your purchase as a gift on the Customs forms; it's against the law.
THE ONLY NATIONS WE SHIP TO OUTSIDE THE USA ARE THE UK, AUSTRALIA AND CANADA.
I make every attempt to ship your purchases within 24 hours of receiving your payment and I'll always notify you immediately if there will be any delay. Please do keep in mind the 24 hour time period does not include weekends or holidays. Consider as well that the post office sometimes works a bit slowly and their stated time frame for delivery is only a guideline, not a guarantee. I do charge a small handling fee to help offset costs for gasoline, ink, envelopes, etc., including the 10% now charges sellers on shipping charges customers pay, and I recycle as much as possible to keep that cost down.
With almost no exceptions, the things listed came from estate sales and I am always on the lookout for more. Keep in mind, vintage is usually at least 50 years old and has typically been gently and lovingly used, although, from time to time I do find things that have never been used. On rare occasions, I find something that was a bit beyond gently used but still, it was just too pretty to pass up. Please, expect that vintage may have flaws and/or vintage odors and unless the flaw detracts significantly from the looks or functionality of the vintage piece, I may not mention it. I strive to make sure any flaws are mentioned but do keep this in mind.
If you have any questions, please contact me here and I’ll always do my best to get back to you within 24-48 hours.
