1920's French Sapphire-Blue Sequin Beaded Floral Motif Art-Deco Flapper Dress

About

There are lots of lovely 1920's garments still around, but every once in a while I come across one that sets my heart a flutter! This is an extraordinarily beautiful and exceptional 1920's French museum quality sheer net-tulle dance dress. Iridescent glossy sequins are mixed with brilliant blue glass tube-beads whose faceted cut creates a dazzling sparkle! My favorite part is the floral garden motif that runs fully around the drop-waist. The work is entirely hand-applied with 3-dimensional aspects throughout. The seductive side-slit skirting really sets this garment apart from other flapper dresses of the time. It is amazing that a piece with this amount of presence can literally feel almost weightless but it does. So romance and rare! Measurements Bust:36 inches Hips:39 inches Total Length:48 inches This antique French flapper dress is in excellent wearable condition with no stains, rips or discoloration. The garment slips over the head with center back hidden hook/eye closures. Bodice is fully lined in sapphire-blue silk. The level of work in this piece would only be found in the highest couture of today. This dress is over 90 years old and is truly breathtaking!
