Very pretty embroidered silk postcard "To My Dear Mother".  This postcard was produced in Paris during World War One.Embroidered postcards were created by French and Belgian women to sell as souvenirs to soldiers posted on the Western Front.  Strips of silk organza were originally hand-embroidered by women and girls in their homes or at refugee camps, but as demand increased, production was moved to Parisian factories.  Batches of embroidered strips were sent for cutting and mounting onto postcards, which were made available to purchase for a few francs each.  Hugely popular with British and American soldiers who bought the cards as momentos to send home to loved ones, and gave no indication of what the soldiers were experiencing.  This pretty postcard has pansies and blue ribbon decoration and a scalloped edge which opens for the card insert which has the words "To My Dear Mother" printed on one side and on the  reverse of the insert in pencil the words written "From your son-in-law George".  In overall good condition for age, very collectable and a poignant souvenir of WW1.

A pair of 1930s wooden and metal shoe stretchers which have been covered in smoky rose coloured velvet by the original owner.  The dusky pink hue of the fabric suits perfectly the stretcher and one can imagine the wonderful satin covered evening shoes it might have been used to stretch ... The fabric is showing signs of age and stitching and is not as bright as it might have been, but this,we think, adds to its vintage charm.  Perfect for display or use if your shoes are as teeny tiny as they were in '30s.

This is a lovely little vintage handmade hat in green tweed.  Very much in the style of a Juliet Cap which were very fashionable in the 1940s, worn at the back of the head with the tassle dangling down.  This is embellished with a green tassle to swing from the cap at the back of your head.  The hat is small and just perches on the back of the head, or alternatively could be used as a child's hat.  It measures approx 20cm in diameter and is therefore quite petite. In good condition for age.
