Vintage Gifts from 1940s
The first half of this decade was. of course, dominated by World War Two, but this was also the decade for movie blockbusters like It's A Wonderful Life, Casablanca and Meet Me In St. Louis. Disney released animated classics like Pinocchio, Bambi and the adorable Dumbo. Rita Hayworth, Clark Gable and Cary Grant were some of the many pin up movie stars to become household names, whilst Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Edith Piaf and Ella Fitzgerald entertained the world with their memorable music. Due to rationing, fashion became more functionality and comfort over style, although the tailored suit became a new found silhouette for women. The Frisbee, the Slinky and Tupperware, were also created during this decade and brands like Bovril and Cadburys's kept the nation smiling! We have put together a wide selection of 1940s memorabilia gifts here for all enthusiasts and to evoke memories for those who lived during this troubled decade.
