Our November 10th sale was a tremendous success for the auction-goers and the institutions with auction lots of historic costume and textiles that were included in this sale. The sale consisted primarily of items from museum collections and items that have been out of public view for decades.
To Be Sold
The sale featured: European and Asian treasures from the 17th through late 20th centuries: rare 20th C. vintage & designer garments, abundant 19th C clothing, hand embroidered & woven textiles, exceptional heirloom laces, early Chinese rank badges, a 16th C. Flemish hunt scene tapestry, a 17th C. Spanish carpet, Japanese embroideries, shoes, hats, bonnets, beaded bags and other fashion accessories.
These rare objects had been hidden away for decades in storage facilities of many legendary American museums: The Brooklyn Museum (NY), Northampton Historical Society (MA), The Heritage Society of Houston (TX), The Columbus Museum (GA), The Chrysler Museum (VA), The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (CA) as well as selections from other institutions, estates and individual consignors.
