Vintage childrens shirt 1930s 1940s Shop soiled Pale blue School uniform UNUSED


A vintage check shirt, suitable for children of primary school age.
Made in England, probably in the 1930s, but possibly late 1940s/early 1950s (just before or just after the Second World War).
There is no maker's name on these garments.
They still have the original shop labels on, but these just give the stock number (B567) and the clothing size.
These shirts are well made, and good quality.
 
They are unsold shop stock from the mid-20th century.
They still have their original price stickers - they cost between 10/3 and 11/6 (ten shillings and thruppence and eleven shillings and sixpence).
I think they may have been intended as summer school uniform shirts, or perhaps even sports kit?
Typical 1930s design, with a short length and elasticated waist.
 
Long sleeves.
Button front.
Collar with pointed tips.
Breast pocket.
The waist is elasticated.
There are no garment care labels - please treat as hand wash only.
 
 
Size: Choice of size.
I am not sure what system these sizes follow - they are certainly NOT children's ages.
Please check the measurements are correct for your child.

Weight 120g approx
 
Colour:
Turquoise and white check.

 
Condition:

Unused vintage clothing, shop soiled.

These shirts were unsold shop stock, from around the 1930s.

They still has the old hand-written price sticker attached, complete with the £sd price.

Unfortunately, the shirts have storage marks on the front, as shown.

These may fade in the wash, but are unlikely to come out completely.

The shirts are unsuitable for ordinary use, but they might be useful for nostalgic or historical interest, or perhaps as an authentic period stage costume.

In view of its age, the garment will need to be hand-washed before use, and treated carefully.

The elastic in particular is unlikely to survive for long.
