1920s Bead Cotton French Flapper Dress

This is a wonderful light cotton French flapper day dress with a little tag that declares it was made in France! The color is a hand dyed pink-peach color and the white & deeper hued bead work really pops against it. All those beads are the teeniest tiniest seed beads and each was meticulously placed ad sewn by hand. A labour intensive piece like this would have been very high quality at the time! It is a great larger size and a sound and lovely example of the period. Strong and wearable condition

Shoulders: no defined seam
Bust: 25" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 21" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 23" flat across from side seam to side seam
Length: 42" from neck to bottom hem

Unlined, it slips over the head with no closures. There are a couple of very faint discolorations here and there but nothing that overly detracts - please super size photos to view. A very small amount of missing beads here and there. Priced accordingly. Hand beaded and hand finished.

Note that antique and twenties pieces are final sale. They will be packed exceedingly well and we only sell pieces that will stand up to the stress of shipping, however, having pieces potentially shipped multiple times through multiple customs and countries is too hard on garments that are historically important and deserve to be treated with love and care. Please purchase accordingly.
