Two Early Brassieres

An unmarked, probably 1930's brassiere, never worn.  Ecru lace top and bottom, silk ribbon straps, rayon cups.

The back is rather low, and has hook and eye tape.

If you blow up the picture below, you can see the rough finishing and the long machine stitches.  Gone are the days of hand-made lingerie.

A really pretty bandeau type bra, yet with cups.  This would look nice with a wrap top.  The lace and cups are cotton, the straps are silk ribbon.

It has three back hooks and eyes.

And a tag I can't read.  It says Silver something.  If anyone has one of these that's readable, please let me know.
