Antique Victorian Ladies Accessories

Welcome to Antique Victorian Ladies Accessories

We are pleased to offer you absolutely exquisite antique and vintage collars, cuffs, handkerchiefs and scarves dating from the early 1800's through the Victorian and Edwardian era's right up to the 1920's. We offer a wide range of elaborate to simple styles of collars and cuffs made from fine lace, embroidery or other needlework, both hand and machine.

In addition, we feature antique and vintage lingerie, sleepwear and ladies undergarments from the mid 1800's to the 1940's. In the middle to late Victorian era a lady's undergarments would consist of a pair of stockings, drawers, a petticoat or multiple petticoats, corset and camisole.

Buttons were used for practical reasons of fastening clothing but were also highly decorative as noted at the beginning of the 18th Century. At this time, skilled artists were working in many materials, especially in precious metals and jewel, designing these beautiful small works of art.

Our selection of vintage Victorian through 1940's collection of hats, bonnets, purses and handbags is one collection that is a must to see! We have a wide variety of ladies (occasionally a man's) and children's hats and bonnets dating from the Civil War through the Victorian, Gay 90's, and the War Years of the 1940's.

Finally, we have a charming collection of ladies vanity and dresser items from the Victorian through the 1920s such as some absolutely gorgeous vintage powder puff wands, Victorian Edwardian Art Noveau brush and mirror sets, and some exquisite handmade boudoir silk sachet rosettes.
