Cristy Tongate knows a valuable vintage piece when she sees one. As the proprietor of Retro Betties—a sizable collection brimming with beautiful pre-loved goodies—she’s a seasoned picker with a penchant for picking up some very cool curiosities. Presenting finds like original 1940s fashion sketches, retro lamps, and ceramic animal figurines, this Texan gal invites you to bring a piece of the past home.
Dated 1942, this fashion sketch is from an artist in Italy. The hard-to-decipher signature looks like it’s signed “deHavle ’42.” Features two ladies in full-color outfits. This gently used vintage product is in good condition. Sketch shows some light aging. Frame is new.
