Just a quick note to say how pleased I am with the Hostess gown which my husband bought for me recently fron your website.

The quality of the clothing is superb and it arrived within 1 week of your confirmation it had been sent.

I have been looking for a gown like this for years and at last I have found one – I will be ordering from your site again.

Hello Dee,

Just wanted to let you know that the Victorian Bonnet from 1876 has arrived. It is so beautiful and it will be proudly displayed in my home.

The colours and designs on the bonnet are so rich and vibrant and I can only just imagine how beautiful the dress the bonnet was made from would have been.

Thank you so much for the satchel of potpourri, that was a really nice surprise. For someone new to the collecting of Victorian clothing and accessories you have made this experience pleasant and fun.

I look forward to visiting your site again to browse through your Victorian treasures in the future. I will highly recommend your store to anyone who collects vintage clothing!

Once again thank you! 🙂

“The dresses have arrived safely in England and are sooper dooper and fit perfectly. Thanks so much!! As you can imagine, this being my first order and me being so far away, one can never be too sure that a seller’s description and quality of the garment will live up to expectations. Having received these lovely items I am now more than happy to order from Davenport and Company again.” Anne Dettmer, London

Thank you so much. I just received the dress. It is exactly as you described. It is beautiful. I could not wait to try it on. In fact I am still wearing it! My neighbors, and the mailman who delivered it also loved it. It fits perfectly. I could not imagine a dress I would adore more.

Thank you again

Hi Dee, The “silky rayon” white nightgown and robe are terrific! They look mint.

They look “bridal”! It looks far better here than what the pictures were on

your site. Your right about the fabric comparison with my silk swatches. I

think the quality of the rayon crepe fabric used in this ensemble is the

highest I’ve ever seen! (And I’ve seen a lot of silk and rayon lingerie.)

My congratulations to you for finding this magnificent set! I’m now very

happy and lucky to own it!

Sincerely, Richard Reissig

Dee. The dress arrived on Friday morning and it is PERFECT. Thanks so much

for all your attention and help. You have really been great to work with.

I won’t hesitate to recommend to Davenport to all my friends. I’ve already

been singing your praises.
