1930s Silver Mardi Gras Costume Size 8-10


Incredible vintage 1930s Mardi Gras costume from New Orleans with exaggerated shaped and hassled shoulders. The body of the top is made of a silver mesh and is heavily embellished with silver applique, sequins, jewels and pearls. There are also sequin wire snakes extending up form the shoulders. It is cropped and fastens under the bust with a popper and is in excellent condition with no flaws. Although it has lost its label it is from Arther Sherrick Costumes.
