Black Dirndl Dress - Volkskunsthaus Wallach
is on back order
Vintage black dirndl German traditional dress. I am not sure how old it as as dirndls have a very classic design, but based on the construction, I would guess 1930s or 1950s.
Bust - 40"
Waist - 31"
Hips - free, up to 50"
Length - 43"
It buttons up the front and has two snaps below the buttons and at the collar. It is in good condition, I did not notice any flaws in the material. The dress does have a bit of a smell, though. It kind of smells like Bakelite (perhaps it was a moth-treatment they used?).
The company Volkskunsthaus Wallach Munich was founded in the early 1900s by Julius Wallach who was Jewish. The brand was considered one of the co-founders of folk art fashion. The family left in the 1930s and returned soon after the war and restarted their business.
