Rare 1920's Hand Beaded Couture Flapper Dress Museum Quality / Small
🏷 A B O U T
Absolutely exquisite 1920's couture hand beaded flapper dress in extraordinary condition. Composed of soft butter yellow silk chiffon and lavishly adorned with thousands of hand stitched beads and yellow rose lace appliqués. Artfully placed appliqués enhance your form - note that the back rosettes draw the eye directly to the wearers back side. Long white beaded fringe decorates the hem. The dress slips on over the head and is meant to be worn loosely. Side slits allow for easy movement. We have paired the dress with an antique silk slip that we found that matches the color perfectly. We will include it with purchase.
This piece is truly an heirloom and in rare near mint condition, still sturdy and wearable. Whether worn as a wedding dress or added to a vintage clothing collection, this is a piece to be cherished and preserved for years to come.
