1920's French Couture Beaded Floral Silk-Chiffon Tiered Waterfall Flapper Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

There are lots of lovely 1920's garments still around, but every once in a while I come across one that sets my heart a flutter! This is an extraordinarily beautiful and exceptional 1920's French couture museum quality silk-chiffon dance dress. The watercolor floral-garden scenic design is pure wearable art. The bodice is embellished with glass-beads, whose circular cut creates a dazzling sparkle. The work is entirely hand applied with 3-dimensional aspects throughout. My favorite detail is the dramatic high to low waterfall hemline. The unique duel-train backside really sets this garment apart from other flapper dresses of the time. It is amazing that a piece with this amount of presence can literally feel almost weightless but it does. So romance and rare! The pictures say it all.

This antique French flapper dress is in excellent wearable condition with no stains or discoloration. Gorgeous hand-finishing throughout. Only signs of age are a few tiny pin-holes to the silk fabric. This dress is over 90 years old and is truly breathtaking!
