1927 French Couture Metallic Gold Lamé Beaded Leaf-Motif Trained Evening Dress

About

Breathtaking 1920's French couture museum-quality beaded & jeweled metallic lamé evening trained dress. The dramatic gold 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 gold fabric is even more amazing when you realize it is all hand-beaded in the much gorgeous turquoise and creme leaf motif. The prong-set jewels add another degree of charm that is irresistible. I adore the fringed cut-out shoulders and three-dimensional floral side applique. The attached duel-trains really set this garment apart of others during the period. This is one of the best 1920's pieces I have ever seen and I would not be surprised to learn that it was custom made from one of the top haute-couture Paris houses at the time. Measurements Bust:36 inches Hips:up to 40 inches Total Length:46 inches (not including trains) This French couture antique dress is in excellent condition with no notable stains and missing parts. There is hand-stitching throughout and hidden side snap clousures. Only signs of wear are a few tears to the attached trains and light fray to the metallic lamé. A rare wearable piece of fashion history that will only increase in value.
