    I bought this for my own collection, and I just adore it! Most 20s undies are peach or pink, but here is a super black teddy.

    It belonged to a lady named Gypsy, and it was part of her trousseau. I got it from her daughter, who says she was married in 1927 or 28. She also had the wedding dress for sale, and it was a beauty - all lace bodice with crystal pleated silk skirt - unfortunately, badly shattered,

    This appears to be all hand done. If any of you lace experts happen by, I'd love to know what kind of lace I have here.

    This flower decoration is made from ribbon.

    The legs are zig-zagged, and have 6 of these lace insets.

    This one is so sweet, that my other 20s undies are feeling a little dowdy this afternoon;)
