1920's French Gold Beaded Flapper Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Melon colored silk chiffon s the perfect background for the lavish gold beadwork on this 1920's French made Flapper dress. The two piece dress has a matching silk slip top above the beaded chiffon skirt. This skirt dips lower in the back creating an interesting line. The hip length sleeveless tunic top is embellished with gold bugle beads, caviar beads and rhinestones. The design motifs are different on the front and back, adding extra interest. The dress is in pristine condition. The net straps on the slip have been lined with silk ribbon. There is a French label inside , which appears to be a couture model name and number, sadly the designer label is not present. This is a stunning example of 1920's French fashion.

This dress is in excellent condition and will be packed carefully for shipment. Because of the age of this garment, and the desire to avoid shipping it back and forth causing potential wear and tear, this piece is a final sale. Please feel free to ask any questions that you may have about this dress.
