1920's French Metallic-Gold Lame Beaded Pleated Flapper Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Breathtaking 1920's museum-quality beaded & rhinestone metallic gold-lame evening dance dress. The ethereal color palette touches a deep chord in our collective aesthetic consciousness. As fashion lovers, we never tire from antique metallics; they will always be fresh to modern eyes. It is in wonderful wearable condition; something that is becoming a rarity as time goes by. The lame is even more amazing when you realize that the skirt is all hand-pleated. The turquoise deco beadwork adds another degree of charm that is irresistible. This is one of the best 1920's pieces I have ever seen and I would not be surprised to learn that it was a custom piece from one of the haute-couture Paris houses at the time. 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 stains,holes or tears. There is hand-stitching throughout. The fabric is unlined and slips over the head to wear. There is perhaps a slightest darkening here and there to the lame. This piece is over 90 years old and is truly stunning.
