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 couture silk-rayon dance dress. It is embellished all over with glass-beads, whose faceted cut creates a dazzling sparkle. The work is entirely hand applied and very heavy with 3-dimensional aspects. The effortless shape really allows one to appreciate the detailed art-deco designs. The dramatic scalloped hemline really sets this garment apart from other flapper dresses of the time. The pictures say it all. Measurements Bust:39-40 inches Waist:Free Hips:42 inches Dress Length:44 inches This antique french beaded dress is in excellent wearable condition with no stains,rips or holes. The garment slips over the head with no closures. The level of work in this piece would only be found in the highest couture of today. Museum quality and appears to have been worn little if at all.
