1920's Gold Lame & Velvet Orientalist Dress and Coat Ensemble

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

It is so rare and unusual to find a 1920's dress and the matching coat, and this is a stunning example. The gold lame dress is a floral pattern with a deep V neckline in the back. There are lame flounces from the hip to the hemline and a wide band of black velvet at the bottom. The dress slips on over your head with snaps on the left side. It is in excellent condition.
The matching evening coat is black silk velvet with dramatic cape sleeves embellished with the gold lame. There are two long velvet ties which are shown worn on the back in the photographs. The coat is fully lined in black satin and it is in excellent condition.
