Vintage 1930's Bralette & Tap Pant Lingerie Set | Rich Apricot Silk with Mocha Lace | Size XS, 32 B | NRA Label -Never Worn
This vintage 1930s bralette and tap pants lingerie set is a very rare collector's dream that has never been worn. Made of rich apricot silk with stunning mocha floral lace that adorns the upper edge of the bralette, hips, and leg openings of the tap panties. The bra has lightly darted cups with very thin non-adjusting straps with rear eye-hook closure, while the panty sits high on the waist with side shell button closure. Absolutely stunning!
NOTE ON NRA LABEL:
The National Recovery Act was written into law by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1933 to enable fair pricing and working standards among the garment industry. By 1935 the NRA was considered unconstitutional and was abolished. This dates any garment with the NRA label as being created between 1933 and 1935. A very rare label that makes these items highly collectible!
Excellent: Never worn without holes or rips. Some very light age spots and water spots from steaming, set has not been washed in an effort to preserve the NRA label. I will happily wash upon request but please note that this may remove the ink from the label.
