Vintage Collars & More Lovely Whites

Yesterday I posted about finding these two great boxes...
and how when I opened the collar box I found 3 wonderful
embroidered, vintage Swiss collars.

And I was terrible and made you wait till today.
It is White Wednesday at Kathleen's Faded Charm you know.
So, here they are.
Be sure to click to enlarge and see details.

These look alike til you look very very close.

This was rolled up in the box too. It is not a collar,
but not sure what it was for.

So, I've looked all over the internet for prices for thee,
but everything I find is just plain, no embroidery.
Anyone know anything about them??
I'm thinking I'll just enjoy looking at them for awhile,
then put them in my store.

And here are some fun shabby finds.
See that cool rusty piece right under the art on the door??

Here is a closeup. perfectly rusty peely white.
and how about this??

Perfectly peely parts of an old wood crib.
Please go over to Cathleen's for more lovely whites.

Those are so cool. I've never seen anything like them. Have no idea how much they would be worth but hopefully someone will be able to tell you.

Wow, those collars are gorgeous, never seen the like! I guess I didn't realize women wore collars too. Love the crib bits too....I can see some fun uses for that.

I love all your perfectly peely goodies. Those collars are so unique. I've never seen anything like them before and wish I had a clue about the other gorgeous piece. Great finds!!

Wow Barbara! What a beautiful post! I love the collars and have never seen anything like them. Maybe a textile museum web site would have something on them. I love all your white, rusty, finds. You've hit the jackpot lately!
Thanks for sharing!
