Gold Lamé Cocoon with Fringe and Crystals, 1920s

About

This magnificent cocoon is made from an antique silk and metal piano shawl from the 1920s. We trimmed it up with fine French ribbon with a complimentary paisley and metallic pattern in blues and greens. The fringe hem adds movement and romance and is original to the piece. The piece fastens at the drop waist with an original art deco clasp with two large hand cut blue glass crystals.
