1920's Bedell Couture Magenta Velvet Metallic Gold Lace Art Deco Flapper Dress


Bedell of New York was one of the high-end custom boutiques operating during the Art-Deco era. Vibrant flapper dresses from this decade are perennial favorites and this one is a show-stopper. The garment's simple unstructured style is so modern; the fine couture fabrics are a treasure trove of needle art. The dress is fashioned from luxurious magenta silk-velvet and lamé lace which surprisingly work so wonderfully together. The exacting perfection of the metallic-gold color is beyond compare, while the gossamer delicacy of the sheer illusion has a magical allure. We are excited to add close detail pictures so one can appreciate the masterful achievement. The sleeveless scalloped bodice is so flattering and effortless to wear. What a magnificent dress for a stylish woman who uses her beauty and clothing as the material from which to create a work of art. Museum quality! Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Hips:44 inches Total Length:50 inches This 1920's Bedell of New York designer dress is in excellent wearable condition with no rips, holes or discoloration. The garment slips over the head with duel side metal-snap closures. Complete with built-in silk camisole pannier undergarment. Only sign of age is some minor tarnish by the underarms. This couture dress is over 90 years old and is truly spectacular.
