Rare 1920s B Altman Haute Couture Ivory Hand Beaded Cotton Voile Vintage Dress

$3,250

About the Item

Incredible, and rare 20s B. ALTMAN Haute Couture dress! Completely hand sewn, and hand embroidered/beaded. This beauty is nothing short of exceptional! Lightweight semi sheer cotton voile looks great alone, or with a slip under. Attached beaded 'necktie' at bodice. White seed beads in a gridlock pattern scattered throughout the dress, with colorful seed beads in floral designs intertwined. Honestly, this piece belongs in a museum, but is still totally wearable, with only one small repair to one sleeve, which is unnoticeable. The possibilities are endless with this exceptionally rare roaring 20s dress! In great condition. Made in Paris, France Approximately Size Medium Measurements: 38 inch bust Up to 38 inch waist 38 inch hips 48 inches from top shoulder to hem
