This is a simple, full circle, black velvet skirt dating from the 1950s. It's made in two pieces, fastens with a side zip and button, and is in excellent condition.
I had always believed (for no particular reason) that this had been hand made, and such may, in fact be the case; however, there are two labels. Both are small, attached near the bottom of the side seams, and neither is particularly enlightening: they have numbers on them. On one, '1513s' front; '200' rear; on the second, '7311s' and again '200'. Both appear to be thick paper, and are attached with a metal clip.
The skirt is unlined, and would look particularly good with a petticoat or two. It's a smallish size; approximate measurements are, waist maximum 26½ ins/66 cms, length from waistband 29 ins/74 cms, circumference of skirt 182 ins/463 cms (yes, really!!!!!)
