Romantic flapper dresses from the early 20th century are perennial favorites and this one is a show-stopper! The garment's simple unstructured style is so modern; the fine beadwork is a treasure trove of needle art. This beauty, fashioned from periwinkle silk-chiffon, is lavishly embellished with the most gorgeous art deco motif. The delicate intricate floral pattern with hints of prong-set rhinestones is so ethereal while the cascading silver glass beads almost resemble waterfalls! The intricate pattern is all hand done and must have taken weeks to complete. I love the sleeveless bodice with unique back fringed cut-out design. The exacting perfection of all this embellishment is beyond compare. Even the zig-zag scalloped hemline compliments the deco design! We needed to add many detail pictures of this French beauty so one can appreciate the masterful achievement. What a breathtaking dress for a woman, who uses her clothing as the material from which to create a work of art.

This mid-1920's Frence couture dress is in excellent wearable condition. Presents beautifully. The garment slips over the head with no additional closures. Only signs of age are some reinforcement net placed under the top straps and a few faint spots throughout which are hardly noticeable when worn. Please message for detailed pictures. This one of a kind treasure is almost 100 years old and is truly spectacular.
