Girls vintage black blazer UNUSED school uniform Chest 28" 33" Grosvenor 1950s


Girls' vintage British school uniform blazer, made about half a century ago but never used.

From the Grosvenor Range created by Arthur Howard.

This is a good quality garment.

Made of black cloth, which appears to be wool or possibly a wool mixture.
 

Blazer

Unlined, except for the sleeves.

3 outside pockets, and 1 inside pocket with zip.

Size: Choice of size. These are girls' school uniform sizes (not ages). The actual garment measurements are:

  • Size 6 (to fit chest 28").....chest 30 inches.....length 22"....sleeve length 19" shoulder to cuff, 14" armpit to cuff......shoulder to shoulder 12"
  • Size 11 (to fit chest 33").....chest 35 inches.....length 26"....sleeve length 22" shoulder to cuff, 16" armpit to cuff......shoulder to shoulder 15"

Weight 500-600g approx.

Difficult to date precisely, but I would think they were probably made in the 1950s or early 1960s.

As you can see, these blazers have never been worn, and still have their original shop tags attached.
They have been in storage at a drapers' shop since around the middle of the 20th century.
I believe they may have been a "sample size" for girls to try on in the shop - so the shop could order the correct size from their tailor.

 
Condition
These blazers are unworn, and in very good condition, with the original shop tags still attached.
The original price tags have been clipped, probably to remove the £sd price when the new "decimal" prices were added in 1971.
The 1970s price is marked as £5.60 on the larger blazer, and £18.50 on the smaller one (I assume this was a mistake!).
These uniforms are unsold shop stock from around the 1950s.
They have been properly stored, and there is no major damage.
However, they are about 60 years old, and they are not quite perfect.
There are one or two tiny threadbare spots in the cloth - it doesn't have holes in it, but it definitely shows its age.
 
The garments smell a little musty.
They will need to be treated gently, and dry cleaned before use.
While they might well be suitable for theatrical or re-enactment use, they will need to be treated gently, and would probably not last long in normal use.
