Here are some written details in the mean time.
Tag Reads (blue tag) A. Sulka & Company
661 Fifth Avenue, New York
London Paris Chicago
The pants are all buttons in the front with silk bands out of one of the loops
(I guess to pull pants tighter?) Ahhh!! I found the date on the pants It is dated 11/29/50 No. 44343
The color of the two piece suite is black with design all lined with grey/silver
silk. Cuffs (?) I don't know cuffed with silk.
I guess what I was hoping for is value? Thanks! Chloe
Now that you've solved the mystery of age, value is more problematic. Size, condition, and whim will frustrate your research.
eBay is a poor indicator in my mind. I've seen some of my excess Sulka items languish without seeming interest or bid. Some of my other Sulka items sold for hundreds of dollars when I expected them to fetch thirty or forty dollars. I haven't sold anything on eBay for more than two years. However, I doubt much has changed in the bidding habits.
I might be able to assist you by comparing to my Sulka catalogues from that era. Since you say it's lined, your item is probably a smoking set rather than pajamas. Does the label also state manufacturing origin (Made in England or Made in France)? If you offer them for sale, several great photos would go a long way to generating interest from serous buyers.
