Lovely French Beaded and Hand Painted Flounced Flapper Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Exceptional beaded flapper dress from 1920s on cinammon-orange semi-sheer cotton muslin base. These dresses were produced in France in the period and are quite strong because they were not beaded onto a more perishable silk. Dress is entirely overbeaded with pearlescent white floral sprays in which the centers are handpainted a slightly darker tone. The leaves and backgrounds are executed in softly patinaed silver beads. Exquisite craftsmanship in the placement of pattern and design in this dress. The pattern enlarges along the dipping fishtail hem.

Easy to wear with no zippers or closures. Normally these dresses are shiftlike with little embellishment but the addition of beaded flounces make this dress special and dramatic.

Excellent condition.
