Estimate: £100 - £150 Edwardian Ladies suit of cream suit of cream wool with blue pin stripe, and a silk blouse with drawn threadwork, labelled Elsie Whiteley, An  intriguing  collection of antique and vintage fashion from  1840-1940 will be auctioned at  Ewbanks sale of vintage fashion and textiles. Originally from Hinwick House in Bedfordshire, a Queen Anne period  country house built to emulate Buckingham Palace.  Home to the eminent Orlebar family for three hundred years, until  its sale in 1992. Two years previously as the house was being prepared for sale.  Mrs Patrica Godwin of Dorset, Artist and for many years director of the Palm Court Orchestra was asked if she would be interested in the clothing. The  lady of the house thought her a suitable custodian owing to the Orchestras  performances  of period music. Some performances were given with the clothes being modelled and Mrs Godwin began to give talks in which she featured the clothes along with cuttings from the newspapers also from Hinwick House. It seems very few items of clothing had been discarded by the Orlebar family and the collection is a fascinating insight into a Century of fashion. .
