1940s Rare Eisenberg Original Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Rare and exceedingly fabulous Eisenberg originals dress that is a purple silk iridescent fabric that has a pretty sheen and depth of color to it. Its really cut wonderfully with a somewhat loose bodice that cinches in at the waist and then flares out gently in true period fashion. The swagging detail is just great - a bow sits on one shoulder and then the opposite hip has a large and lovely draped panel of fabric that give the dress extra shape and movement. I love the half panel of tightly gathered ruching on one side only and this one even has its original belt! Its a rare piece and gorgeous. Cut to perfection and impeccably seamed. Excellent condition.



Shoulders: no defined seam

Bust: 20” from side seam to side seam

Waist: 13” from side seam to side seam

Hips: 20” from side seam to side seam

Bodice: 16” from shoulder to waist seam

Skirt: 30” from waist seam to bottom hem



The dress is unlined and closes with a side painted metal zipper. There are some very light press marks here and but I feel they are forgivable and do not detract. It should be dry cleaned when cleaned again in the future.



Any of our garments can be purchased directly from the Shrimpton Couture website. Layaway is available, we have a full return policy and items are shipped boxed and freshly cleaned!
