A gorgeous pair of gold satin knickerbockers, made for a 1883 production of Mozart's opera, Cosi Fan Tutte by the Societe Universelle du Theatre. Noted flaws - some light surface marking on the centre front, but generally in excellent condition. Entirely handmade, soft satin material, stamped with the theatre company name and pencil writing on the cotton lining, grey velvet edging at the cuffs, v notch and buckle back, suspender buttons, hook and eye side fastenings, fully lined, a really beautifully made item with some great history. These were probably only worn a handful of times, and then stored away - it would be entirely possible to wear these 136 year old breeches today! I wear a women's UK size 10/12 and they fit me well.

I am currently based in France. I currently send items with the French postal service, La Poste. Parcels come with a tracking number, which I will add to your shipping notification and can be tracked on Laposte.fr. I am currently unable to offer cheaper services, and I can not alter the shipping price, except for overcharges.
I cannot send items out on weekends or Mondays, because France. I live in a small village where the post office opens for 3 hours a day, and has days off without warning, so occasionally I might be a day late in sending things off; I'll let you know if this is the case though!
Nope. Unless you are buying 5+ items, I do not offer discounts.
