About

Sensational 1950s Blauner for Bonwit Teller vintage silk dress!!! This has to be one of my favorites EVER! Max Blauner founded the Suzy Perette label following the success of his own, more expensive namesake label. His designs were highly sought after. This beauty features hand painted gold designs on a green silk. Attached crinoline for a full skirt. Hand finished work--The detail and construction on this dress is impeccable! Looks great with the pictured 1960s Paco Rabanne metal purse (also available in my 1stDibs Store). In great condition. Full metal zipper up the back. Approximately Size Small Measurements: 34 inch bust 26 inch waist Free hips 40.5 inches from top shoulder to hem
