1920's Art-Deco Embroidered Beaded Silk-Chiffon Flapper Dress

Breathtaking 1920's museum quality silk-chiffon evening dance dress. The ethereal black & blue color palette touches a deep chord in our collective aesthetic consciousness. As fashion lovers, we never tire from antique beadwork & embroidery; they will always be fresh to modern eyes. Glossy jet-black beads are mixed with brilliant blue geometric patterns. It is in utterly pristine condition; something that is becoming more and more of a rarity as time goes by. All that work is even more amazing when you realize the art-deco swirl pattern is done by hand. The matching silk-taffeta, drop-waist sash adds another degree of charm. Making a bold and dramatic fashion statement, this could have been worn in Boardwalk Empire at the end of 1924.

This antique dress is in excellent condition with no notable holes, discoloration or tears. There is hand-stitching throughout. I wouldn't be surprised if this creation was by a famous designer, as it has all the hallmarks of a couture piece from the era. This piece is over 90 years old and is truly stunning.
