1940s Rare Eisenberg Original Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


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.
