Printz-Biderman Co., one of the oldest American manufacturers of women's apparel, was organized in Dec. 1893 by master tailor Moritz Printz. A native of Austria, Printz came to Cleveland in 1872 to work for his brother-in-law, cloak manufacturer David Black. The head designer for D. Black & Co., Printz stayed in Cleveland when Black moved his company to New York in 1894. The company merged with H. Black & Co. in 122. By 1933 it had sales offices in New York, Boston, and Chicago in addition to Cleveland. Max Reiter, a co-founder of Ritmore Sportswear Co., took over Printz-Biederman in 1954 at a time when the company employed over 1,000 workers with annual sales of $8 million. The company experienced a decline in sales starting in the 1960s and closed in 1978.

Heavy sweater for extremely cold weather.
Handwash, lay flat to dry.
The Cowichan sweater is a garment created in North America with a distinctly patterned design knitted out of bulky-weighted yarn. It originated during the 19th century among the Cowichan, a Coast Salish people, British Columbia. Each sweater has a unique design, thickness, size, and shape. All of the sweaters are made from bulky home-spun wool that is unprocessed — one of the key features that distinguish a genuine from an imitation. All sweaters are knit in a tubular fashion using two or three natural wool colors, including white, blackish-brown and grey. They also include a shawl-style collar and a v-neck with extra folded fabric on the back of the neck.
The Thunderbird is a mythical creature that is said to be the dominating force of nature.

Geoffrey Beene, born in Louisiana in 1927. After dropping out of medical school he moved to Los Angles and studied fashion design. He later studied in New York City and Paris. He founded his firm, Geoffrey Beene, Inc., in New York City in 1963. A year later, he was awarded the Coty American Fashion Critics' Award, one of the most prestigious awards in the field of fashion. His first collection was featured on the cover of Vogue Magazine. Beene's clients included Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon, Nancy Reagan, Faye Dunaway and Glenn Close.[ In 1968, he designed Lynda Bird Johnson’s wedding dress. Beene was known as both an innovator and a teacher. Several of his former apprentices such as Kay Unger and Alber Elbaz are now successful fashion designers.
Eunice Johnson founded the Ebony Fashion Fair (EFF) in 1958. Johnson was co-owner, with her husband, of Chicago-based Johnson Publishing Company, the publisher of Ebony Magazine. The annual fashion show featured male and female models of mostly African-American descent modeling fashions from top European designers such as Yves St Laurent, Oscar de la Renta, Pierre Cardin, Paco Rabanne, Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier, Valentino and Emanuel Ungaro. Johnson's aim was to bring high fashion couture to the African-American woman who often didn't have access to the best shops. Many African-American fashion designers got their start with the show including Stephen Burrows, Patrick Kelly, and Willi Smith. The EFF ended in 2009 after the death of Eunice Johnson. Since her passing, Johnson Publishing has been gradually deaccessioning the fashion archive. This collection from Madge includes some of the last pieces that will be made available.

In the middle of the back of the stole is a surprise, the head with glass eyes. Bakelite chain runs across the front and hooks into a loop on the other side. Brown silk crepe lining with small inside pocket. Please read condition report.
