As we all eagerly await the end of the pandemic winter, we are hopeful this may prove to be our final exclusively online sale.   This extraordinary catalog of new-to-market vintage treasures is primarily populated with de-accessed pieces from numerous museums and historical societies with a few private collections sprinkled in for good measure. With so many new and never-before-seen finds, this promises to be another spectacular spring sale - full of surprises.

Menswear will be well represented in this auction with a collection of mid 19th C separates, two exceptionally well preserved early 20th C suits, 1930s & 1940s loungewear and more.
