Four vintage postcards showing the traditional costumes the island of Walcheren and of the peninsula of South-Beveland in the province of Zeeland in the southwest area of The Netherlands bordering the North Sea. Two cards must be from around 1915, one card is from around 1935, and the newer card is from the eighties (all cards were actually sent).
The costume from Walcheren is colourful and girly with deep cut jackets and bodices underneath; it has a white lace cap with a tail for the little girls and a small fitting white lace cap for women. The latter cap is held on the head by a visible ear-iron. We have here three cards with children, playing in the dunes or on the beach along the North Sea; the first card also shows two women with the adult lace cap, of which one is knitting. The fourth card shows two women and a boy from South-Beveland, cleaning the farm yard. The female costume from South-Beveland includes a lovely bodice (i.e. the kraplap) mostly of flowered fabrics; it has a large white lace cap in the form of a big shell. The cap is held on the head by a visible ear-iron with large silver plate ends. The women in this card wear only the undercap with the head iron; the large white lace shell-cap will be put on top of this when they are finished with the dirty work.

All cards come from my own traditional costume collection; because of space shortage, I sell parts of it here on Etsy.

Payment can be done by Paypal and within the EU also by direct bank transfer. Details on request.
