1920s Silver Lamé Evening Dress Beaded with Chinese Garden

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A luxurious Chinese garden scene embellishes this exotic dress from the art deco era. The bead and crystal work is all in fantastic condition. The fabric as well is very strong for its age and we would say this dress is 100% wearable. Please note that it is a straight cut as was the fashion for this era and thus only accommodates a smaller bust, see measurements. The trimming looks to be Edwardian to us and was possibly added at a later date. With garments who's lifetimes have spanned longer than one's own it is impossible to tell the life they have lead. Regardless we love the movement the blue glass beads add, evocative of Chinese lanterns perhaps? A lovely dress both to wear as well as for display.
