Canton shawls are so lovely. Popular from the late Teens into the 1920s, they were both worn and draped on furniture, hence the common name of "piano shawl". This one is a soft cream silk with scrolling brilliant red, rose yellow and gold flowers with trailing greenery and lavender accents. The fringe is knotted on and quite long.

Vintage 1930s Brown Doeskin Lace-Up Oxfords SZ 7.5

The high heeled pumps and oxfords of the 1930s have the most elegant shape. This pair of oxfords has stitched and sharply shaped vamp and quarter with an oval toe and ribbon style laces. They are a dark brown doeskin with leather soles. I wear an 8A, and I can just get these shoes on my foot. So I would say 7.5 AA is true.

Early 1920s Black Deep Crown Horsehair Cloche Hat SZ 23

My favorite period of hats! This deep crown, narrow brimmed cloche is early 1920s , possibly as early as 1919. It's a draped and pleated horsehair with braid flower at center back and braid trim on the crown. The under brim is a fine horsehair trim in ecru. The hat is lined in black silk.

Vintage 1940s Black Felt Tilt Hat by McCreery

Right after decorated 1920s cloches come 1940s felt hats in my opinion. This jaunty tilt hat has the typical circular wire back clamp of the 1940s. It's a black felt with a brilliant red, yellow and green feather cockade with longer black plumes that slide through a tip of the crown slot and emerge on the side of the crown. The toque crown has a shaped dip over the forehead and crushed sides. I suspect there was a veil at one time.

These antique Middle Eastern may be Turkish? Possibly. I am told they may well be Moroccan. These silk slip on shoes are rather large. I wear a lady's size 8 and these swim on my feet.
