1940s Mary Black of London Red Paisley Dress with Bustle

About

ABSOLUTELY Gorgeous 1940s dress in a lush red and gold paisley floral print! This maxi evening dress features short lightly capped sleeves, a sweetheart neckline with ruched point, a low scoop back, and an amazing bow - like bustle! The skirt is pleated in the back, giving the skirt greater volume. This form fitting dress with a generous skirt highlights one silhouette but has room to move. Mary Black was born a Londoner, but she relocated to New York due to and during War II. Mrs. Black was into classic silhouettes, sometimes using used bright and bold prints to add contrast and interest! She sold her dresses both to exclusive boutiques and a few high end society types. While her name has never been well known her dresses have been seen a number of museum collections and have stood the test of time as she used quality fabrics and had wonderful construction.
