1920's French Metallic-Gold Beaded Sequin Deco Silk-Chiffon Flapper Dress & Coat

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

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 metallic gold couture silk-net dance dress and matching evening coat from "Fleurette". This dress shop was the only place in Tientsin that imported high-end garments from Paris. This ensemble is embellished all over with sequins and glass-beads, whose faceted cut creates a dazzling sparkle. The effortless shape really allows one to appreciate the detailed art-deco designs. The dramatic waterfall tiered hemline really sets this set apart from other flapper garments of the time. The pictures say it all!

The antique french beaded dress is in excellent condition with no stains,rips or holes. The garment slips over the head with no closures. The matching coat had some structural issues around the shoulders which has been repaired. Both pieces are fragile but can be worn with care. This ensemble is over 80 years old and is truly breathtaking!
