1920's French Heavily-Embroidered Metallic Floral Silk Drop-Waist Flapper Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Breathtaking 1920's museum quality silk-satin evening dance dress. The ethereal colorful floral pattern touches a deep chord in our collective aesthetic consciousness. As fashion lovers, we never tire from metallic embroidery; it will always be fresh to modern eyes. 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 designs are done completely by hand. The flattering drop-waist silhouette with side panels 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.
