Graceful Mermaid! Unworn 1940s Rayon Satin Nightgown Sz- 38 (#1494)
This wonderful satin nightgown dates from the late-1940s, and has been featured in a 1945 Fischer lingerie ad! The gown is listed in both the Heavenly Fischer Salon and the Richard’s Collection categories. Click on one of the 'Gloria' models to visit our unique boutiques!
We at Silver Screen Loungerie, are dedicated to offering vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. While we sometimes find an occasional “new/old stock” piece – like this one, most of our items have been gently worn by just one previous owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring these pieces – as much as possible, to their original beauty.
Words alone cannot adequately describe this fascinating nightgown! The back is shown in the mirror of the Fischer ad, and like the gown itself, it seems like both the ad and the gown appeared just yesterday! The gown has generous proportions, ranging from a size 38 bodice… with a 33-inch waist seam, and draping 60 inches to the ‘full-sweep’ hem. The ‘sweep’ (circumference) of the hem is an impressive 112 inches.
The Fischer “mermaid” label is located inside the left shoulder, and the $19.95(!) price tag is attached to the front neckline.
The nightgown is in mint, unworn condition with no flaws that we could find. The rayon satin fabric feels so beautiful on the skin, and the lace trim helps make this one of the most graceful gowns that we’ve ever seen! On our 5’ – 10” ‘Gloria’ model, the gown drapes becomingly to just below her ankles. See the Fischer ad… photographed in 1945! As always, the stated measurements are those of the garment itself. Please allow room for simple “ease” and breathing.
This is one very-special Fischer nightgown, and it will be a joy to YOU, the most-fortunate buyer, and the Star of your own Life!
