    I have no info nor can I find any on this label. Has anyone seen it or have any information on it? It's from a 50's coat I believe. But I need more info on the label to be sure.

    Are there any other labels? Do you have any pictures of the entire item?

    I tried to look but wasn’t able to find anything. Lynne @lkranieri may be able to help

    Thank you for having a look. There are no other labels anywhere but here are some photo's of the entire garment. I've done a burn test, it is 100% wool.

    Thank you for your (undeserved) suggestion I might be able to help. I saw the request earlier and tried to find anything at all about Rebere, but found nothing. Yesterday I searched again during the long drive to what will be our next house and I found only a few little bits about the label. In light of what little I found it seems the reason for the dearth of information may be due to the fact they were only in existence for a couple of years. I found nothing at all that gave any history of the business, but the first reference I found was in a 1957 ad:

    I then found a few 1958 ads, all similar:

    and, finally, this 1959 ad advertising a deep discount on Rebere items, which suggested to me the line was being discontinued and/or going out of business:

    The only other thing I found was this undated reference to a Rebere ballgown. I don't subscribe to Invaluable, so I was not able to see more detail about the gown:

    Well, having just posted the above, I made one last stab at the search and found a 1952 reference to Rebere:

    and a 1953 skirt ad:

    I am so grateful! Thank you so much. I absolutely searched my butt off for something, anything but no luck. So I’m quite comfortable now with my dating and that the label is legit.
    Thank you!
