VANITY & BOUDOIR ITEMS

Unused Frilly Vintage Pink Ribbonwork Shoe Stretchers, Ribbon Rosettes, Passementerie, c. 1920's
Unused Frilly Vintage Pink Ribbonwork Shoe Stretchers, Ribbon Rosettes, Passementerie, c. 1920's

Material:  Ribbon, Wood

Size:  11 & 3/8 inches

Quantity:  1 Pair

This is one of the fanciest, frilliest pair of vintage show stretchers I have encountered in awhile.

They have never been used.  I removed them from the original old box that was tattered beyond further use.

Two layers of ruche pink ribbon, one light, one darker, adorn the middle of each stretcher.  Each is further decorated with ribbon rosettes, metallic gold braid interwoven with green silk floss, plus purple and green velvet flowers, accented with embroidered French knots.  The wood ends are painted a pinkish lavender, that coordinates with the passementerie trim..

The stretchers are in excellent vintage estate condition.  Since they have been boxed for many years the colors remain bright and vibrant and they are clean and free of dust.  Ribbons and trims are very nice, as are the wood ends.  No rips, tears, chips, etc.

I have been told that the fancier stretchers, like this nice pair, were often used for wedding or trousseau and other expensive shoes, such as dance, or party slippers.  They can still be used today for a similar purpose or just to decorate a feminine vanity or boudoir.

A very nice, original Flapper era collectable.
