About

This sensational 1910's French Edwardian bolero vest is lavishly embellished with glossy glass beads and sparkling jewels throughout. The highly stylized floral embroidery perfectly captures the Art Nouveau aesthetic. Double layered "light as a feather" black net tulle is the base for this breathtaking treasure; a regal patina which will add pizzazz to any modern ensemble. It is cut shorter, allowing endless possibilities of how one would style this garment. This is an extraordinary example of Edwardian bohemian gypsy refinement and a special find for the serious collector.
