1920s Pink Sequin & Paillette Net Flapper

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The color of this dress is outstanding and exceedingly rare to find on a twenties piece! It is that perfect shade of pink with tiny shots of silver glass beads worked into the design to gve al little extra pop to the color! This is a classic art deco, tubular flapper dress that has been hand-done from top to bottom in elaborate rows of pink sequins and pink and silver tube beads. The skirt of the piece is remarkable - it has elaborate and perfect rows of teardrop paillettes, each hand placed and attached. These add tremendous movement and glitz to the piece. They also make an astonishingly beautiful sound when you move - like the wind rustling through tree tops on a perfect summer day. I don't think I have ever fallen so utterly in love with a dress before this one. It makes me happy just to look at it. The dress is in excellent, wearable condition with proper care and the love it deserves. It is not just a dress but a work of art and the pictures do not come close to doing it justice - if you even remotely fell in love with it - you will faint from happiness to see and hear it in real life. Excellent, museum quality.

Bust: 17" flat across from side seam to side seam
Natural Waist: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 20" flat across from side seam to side seam
Total length: 40" from shoulder to bottom hem

The dress is unlined and slips over the head to wear. There is one small break in the netting at one shoulder but otherwise the dress is in museum quality condition. It should only be cleaned upon the recommendation of a trusted cleaner when cleaned again in the future.

Note that antique and twenties pieces are final sale. They will be packed exceedingly well and we only sell pieces that will stand up to the stress of shipping, however, having pieces potentially shipped multiple times through multiple customs and countries is too hard on garments that are historically important and deserve to be treated with love and care. Please purchase accordingly.
