American Lingerie Designs Shadowline Lingerie
pen, ink, watercolour and bodycolour; paper size approx. 31x15 - 34x21cm; some smudges, stains and original corrections o/w exc. cond.
We are very excited to be able to offer these original designs for the American lingerie company ?Shadowline?. This company operated from 1946 to 2009 when it was bought by another company. The brand was know for its high quality and fine finish but, eventually, could not compete with the low prices offered by chain stores and cheap production.
Since then, the grandson has resurrected the company with its original emphasis on quality rather than quantity. For more information, please go to: http://www.shadowline-lingerie.com .
The designs shown here are original ink and watercolour drawings on artist?s cardboard, used for seasonal catalogues and advertising from 1960 - 1980.
It is very unusual to find depictions or indeed, original designs for underwear which makes these drawings even more desirable and sought after.
