Late 1930s Eisenberg & Sons Originals Heart Sequin Dress
The most important thing to know about this dress is that it has heart shaped sequins. That in itself makes it covetable. I don't think I have seen heart shaped sequins from this time period before and its little details like this that make me love vintage so much. The cut is perfectly simple and perfectly feminine. The skirt skims over the hips and falls in a slim column to the floor with a small vent at the front to allow for walking. The bodice is classic thirties with short sleeves and a high V neck with a gathered ruching detail running down the front to just past the waist. The shoulders are the stars of the show on this dress and each is made of a nubby textured wool - one in red, one in green. They are inset to give the illusion of an off-shoulder detail and each is covered with perfectly spaced little heart sequins. It's genius. Eisenberg dresses from the late thirties and early 1940s are almost impossible to find anymore as the company only made clothing for a few short decades - completely going from clothing to only producing jewels as of 1958. The pieces from the thirties and forties are the most collectible and this was definitely the "heyday" of the clothing division. Excellent condition with some tiny things to note below
Unlined and closes with a side painted metal zipper. I see a teeny bit of over-pressing to the seams and fabric here and there and a bit of a mark under one arm that is not seen when on. Considering its age and rarity I feel like this just adds to the authenticity and patina of this amazing vintage dress.
