New Products

We’ve listed four new products on our website:

Men’s Silk Cravat

This Silk Cravat makes a handsome addition to any 17th, 18th, and 19th century gentleman’s wardrobe. Approximately 13” by 69”. Woven with 100% silk thread. Hand-rolled and hand-stitched hems. Offered in white only, but you can easily dye your scarf if you wish.

Ladies’ Silk Fichu

A fichu was a large square kerchief folded diagonally and tied, pinned, or tucked as a modesty piece across the shoulders and over the front of a woman’s bodice. A common accessory for the 18th century lady. Measuring approximately 42” square, our Fichus are made of pure silk. Hand-rolled and hand-stitched hems. Available in white only, but you can easily dye them to compliment your outfit.

Pop Top Mittens

Ok, Pop Top Mittens aren’t meant to be period correct. They were sent to us by our supplier by mistake. Rather than having someone pay shipping to return them, we decided to go ahead and sell them. They’re very versatile, easily converting from mittens to fingerless gloves. Made of wool blend, sure to keep your mitts toasty warm. While they last. One size fits most. You better hurry because the folks here seem to be taking a liking to them.

Basswood Bottle Crate

We’re also offering a new solid Basswood Bottle Crate, good for holding 12 bottles, up to 3” in diameter and 9-1/2” high. This box is elegant in its simplicity. Unfinished. Leather strap hinges. Jute rope handles. Comes with a removable hardwood divider to keep your bottles from breaking in transit. Bottles sold separately. Outside dimensions: 11” wide x 11” tall x 14-1/2” long.
