A magnificent Bonwit Teller & Co couture black lace bias-cut gown from the 1930's 'Old Hollywood' era of glamour. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; French floral motif black scalloped lace that has been draped to perfection. We added many pictures of the lace so you can see how beautiful it is. The bodice has the prettiest velvet floral appliqué straps and built-in sash waist. The bias-cut skirting is added in pointed inset seamed pieces typical of the time period and insanely hard to do with sheer lace. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust, skims the hip and falls to the floor effortlessly. It is impeccably seamed and on the level of modern day couture. Here is a gown with attitude and elegance.

Bust: 30-32 inches
Waist: 24-26 inches
Hips: up to 36 inches
Total Length: 60 inches

This rare 1930's Bonwit Teller Couture lace gown is in beautiful wearable condition with no stains, fade or alternations. Original black silk slip included and perfectly working side metal snaps. Only signs of age are a few small breaks in the lace and some minor wear to the velvet floral appliquéd straps. This gown is over 90 years old and is truly spectacular.
